Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:127123
Parent Cell Line:  IB10/E14IB10 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Inducible, Recombinase, Reporter)
Inducer:    tamoxifen
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsAn EGFP-IRES-creERT2 cassette was inserted into exon 1 of the gene along with a loxP-flanked neomycin cassette. The neomycin gene was then excised in vivo by crossing with cre-deleter strain. GFP expression is driven by the endogenous promoter. Cre expression is induced in Lgr5 expressing cells by tamoxifen treatment. (J:127123)
