Tg(Vil-cre/ERT2)23Syr - Alimentary System
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
transgene insertion 23, Sylvie Robine
Driver: Vil1
Type: Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer: tamoxifen
Synonym: TgvCreERT2, Tg(Vil-cre/ESR1)23Syr, vil-Cre-ERT2, vil-Cre-ERT2, villin-creERT2, villin::CreERT2, Villin-Cre(ER-T2), Villin-CreERT2
Molecular description: A 9 kb segment of the regulatory region of the mouse Vil gene drives expression of cre recombinase fused to a mutated ligand binding domain of the human estrogen receptor. Cre recombination is inducible with tamoxifen treatment in epithelial cells all along the crypt-villus axis and in undifferentiated progenitor cells in the crypt region. This is a representative record for the two lines generated (Fo23 and Fo24) that have the same inducible expression pattern. Only 1 copy of the transgene integrated in these lines.
