Molecular Image Detail
Caption Schematic of the Tg(Mchr1-cre)1Emf construct. Using a BAC clone, the cre sequence was inserted downstream of the Mchr1 promoter, within exon 1 (EX1) of the Mchr1 gene by homologous recombination. The Mchr1 promoter upstream of the Mchr1 EX1 and exon 2 (EX2) coding sequence drives the expression of cre recombinase. This allows cre recombinase to be expressed from MCHR1-containing cells only.
