Tg(Myh6-cre/Esr1*)1Jmk - Cardiovascular System
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
transgene insertion 1, Jeffery D Molkentin
Driver: Myh6
Type: Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer: tamoxifen
Synonym: alphaMHC-Cre-Mer-Cre, alpha-MHC-MerCreMer, MCM, mer, mER-CRE-mER, MerCreMer, Myh6-MerCreMer, Tg(Myh6-cre/Esr1)1Jmk
Molecular description: This transgene expresses a cre recombinase/ mutant estrogen receptor ligand binding domain fusion protein under the control of a mouse cardiac-specific alpha-myosin heavy chain promoter. Expression was detected in the juvenile and adult heart, but the protein is inactive until induced with tamoxifen.
