description
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer:    tamoxifen
Mutation:    Insertion
 
Mutation detailsA fragment encoding cre recombinase fused to a modified estrogen receptor ligand-binding domain (ERT2) was cloned into a vector containing the human KRT18 promoter. The construct was inected into fertilized oocytes to generated transgenic mice. Two lines were obtained. Line 23 was used in the original reference. (J:163216)
