Strain development Generated by Kiyoshi Takatsu, Kumamoto University Medical School. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C3H fertilized eggs. C57BL/6 (RBRC01908) and BALB/c (RBRC05910) background (Developed by Institute of Medical Science, University of Tokyo), NZW background (RBRC01200) (Developed by Juntendo University School of Medicine).
Strain description Mt1-Il5 transgenic mice. These transgenic mice express mouse IL-5 under the control of the Mt1 promoter.
Colony maintenance Carrier x Carrier (Homozygous x Homozygote) Tg mice show no obvious abnormality.
