Tg(Vil1-cre)997Gum - Reproductive System
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
transgene insertion 997, Deborah L Gumucio
Driver: Vil1
Type: Transgenic (Recombinase)
Synonym: 12.4KbVilCre, Tg(Vil-cre)997Gum, Vcre, VilCre, Vil-Cre, Villin-cre, Villin.cre, VillinCre
Molecular description: A 12.4-kb promoter fragment from the villin 1 gene drives the expression of cre recombinase. Recombination occurs in villi and crypt cells of the small and large intestines, closely patterning the endogenous gene expression. According to the corresponding author (J:78815), expression is generally continuous but a small amount of mosaicism is noted in the colon. Onset of transgene expression is at 12.5 dpc, which is delayed from the endogenous mouse Vil gene expression onset of 9.0 dpc.
