Tg(Sp7-tTA,tetO-EGFP/cre)1Amc - Limbs
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
transgene insertion 1, Andrew P McMahon
Driver: Sp7
Type: Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase, Reporter, Transactivator)
Inducer: doxycycline
Synonym: osterix-Cre, Osx1-cre, Osx1-GFP::Cre, Osx-Cre, Osx-Cre::GFP, Osx-gfp, The Sp7-Cre-EGFP
Molecular description: A tTA-regulated GFP::Cre construct, which has the tetracycline-regulated transactivator (tTA) cassette upstream of a tetracycline-responsive element (tetO)-controlled Enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein/cre fusion protein was used to modifiy a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) encoding exon 1 of the mouse Sp7 gene (formerly osterix or Osx1). A frt-flanked selection cassette following the tTA-regulated GFP::Cre was removed from correctly targeted bacteria via transient flpe expression. A 5.2 kb portion of the modified BAC (Osx1-GFP::Cre) was used for pronuclear injection into fertilized CD1 embryos.
