Tg(BEST1-rtTA,tetO-cre)1Yzl - Sensory Organs
Recombinase Activity Detail
Allele Information
transgene insertion 1, Yun-Zheng Le
Driver: BEST1
Type: Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase, Transactivator)
Inducer: doxycycline
Synonym: VMD2-cre
Molecular description: Two transgenic fragments were co-injected to generate the mouse line. One fragment contains a 3 kb human BEST1 promoter fragment driving expression of the tetracycline-inducible transactivator rtTA and the SV40 polyA sequence. The second fragment consists of the tetracycline-responsive regulatory element (tetO) and human cytomegalovirus immediate early enhancer (hCMV) controlling expression of a translationally optimized cre sequence followed by the mouse metallothionein (Mt1) polyadenylation signal. After co-injection into zygotes, 10 founders were obtained with co-integration of both fragments into a single chromosome being observed in all founders. One line demonstrating substantial activity in Muller glial cells was characterized further.
