Tg(Ddx4-cre)1Dcas - Reproductive System
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
transgene insertion 1, Diego H Castrillon
Driver: Ddx4
Type: Transgenic (Recombinase)
Synonym: Mvh-Cre, Vasa-Cre
Molecular description: A 5.6kb fragment of the Ddx4 promoter was ligated to the cre open reading frame with an engineered nuclear localization signal. Eight transgenic lines were created but only two possessed expressing in the gonads as early as E15. When the cre transgene is maternally expressed, all progeny can show ubiquitous recombination even if the cre is not inherited, likely due to perdurance of cre protein in the egg.
