Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Erv4-cre/ERT2*)657Slp
Name: transgene insertion 657, Samuel L Pfaff
MGI ID: MGI:5431581
Synonyms: 2C::ERT2-Cre-ERT2, Tg(MuERV-L-ERT2-Cre-ERT2)657Slp
Transgene: Tg(Erv4-cre/ERT2*)657Slp  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  BALB/c and C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer:    tamoxifen
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe 5' LTR of murine endogenous retrovirus with leucine tRNA primer (MuERV-L; MERVL; Erv4) and the primer binding site drive expression of tamoxifen-inducible Cre recombinase (2C::ERT2-Cre-ERT2). Two flanking ERT2 segments were inserted to make Cre activation less leaky. The transgenic vector was injected into CB6 (BALB/c and C57BL/6) embryos and the resultant strain was subsequently maintained on the same mixed genetic background by the donating laboratory. This is founder line 657. (J:186302)
