Strain name B6.Cg-Tg(Six3-cre)69Frty
Former Common name TgN(Six3 Cre)69Frt; Six3Cre#69
H-2 Haplotype No Data
Background strain No Data
1 Appearance black

Strain development Developed by Yasuhide Furuta, University of Texas, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. The Six3-cre transgene fragment was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F2 fertilized eggs. The mice were crossed to C57BL/6 (N5 times).
Strain description Transgenic mice expressing Cre recombinase in a central region of the developing retina and widely in the ventral forebrain. Useful for tissue-specific gene activation/inactivation approaches. In particular, consequences of gene activation/inactivation in Cre-expressing cells within the retina can be assessed in direct comparisons to the surrounding non-Cre-expressing cells in an animal. Line 69 (RBRC01154), Line 22 (RBRC01153).
