Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Adipoq-cre/ERT2)1Soff
Name: transgene insertion 1, Stefan Offermanns
MGI ID: MGI:4946615
Synonyms: Adipoq creER(T)2, AdipoqCreERT2
Transgene: Tg(Adipoq-cre/ERT2)1Soff  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer:    tamoxifen
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA targeting vector containing cDNA encoding cre recombinase fused to the mutated form of the ligand binding domain of the human estrogen receptor followed by an Frt-flanked ampicillin resistance marker was generated. Homologous recombination resulted in insertion of the vector into the start codon of the Adipoq locus present in a BAC clone (RP23-112M7; this BAC also contained the genes Kng1, Eif4a2, and Rfc4.) Flp-mediated excision removed the ampicillin marker. Five founders were obtained and crossed with lacZ reporter mice. Progeny of one founder displayed homogeneous lacZ expression in epididymal, mesenterial, and retroperitoneal white adipose tissue after tamoxifen treatment. (J:170002)
