Gad2tm1(cre/ERT2)Zjh - Nervous System
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
glutamic acid decarboxylase 2; targeted mutation 1, Z Josh Huang
Driver: Gad2
Type: Targeted (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer: tamoxifen
Synonym: Gad2-CreER, Gad2-CreERT2, GAD65-CreER, GAD65-CreERT2
Molecular description: A targeting vector was designed to insert a CreERT2 fusion gene (Cre-ERT2; Cre recombinase fused to a G400V/M543A/L544A triple mutation of the human estrogen receptor ligand binding domain), an SV40 polyA signal, and an frt-flanked neo cassette into the initiation codon of the Gad2 (glutamic acid decarboxylase 2) gene. This construct was electroporated into 129 x C57BL/6 hybrid embryonic stem (ES) cells. Correctly targeted ES cells were injected into recipient blastocysts and chimeric mice were bred with white C57BL/6 mice to originate the colony. Mutant mice were bred with Actin-FLPe mice (on a C57BL/6 congenic background (N10)) to remove the neo selection cassette.
