description
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Recombinase)
Mutation:    Insertion
 
Mutation detailsSequence encoding cre recombinase was adjoined to the Fabp4 promoter, which is active in white and brown adipose tissue. Northern blot analysis and a functional assay showed the transgene to be abundantly expressed in brown and white adipose tissue. Significant expression was not detected in other tissues including skeletal muscle, liver, and heart. (J:73557, J:88210)
