Synonyms: Gfp-HB9, Hb9-eGFP, Hb9::EGFP, Hb9-Gfp, Hb9:GFP-1B, Hlxb9:GFP
Transgene: Tg(Hlxb9-GFP)1Tmj  Location: Chr15:13853202-13862183 bp  Genetic Position: Chr15, Syntenic
Alliance: Tg(Hlxb9-GFP)1Tmj page
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x CBA)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct contains a 9kb sequence of the 5' portion of the mouse Hlxb9 (Mnx1) gene, a 5' splice substrate, an enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein (EGFP) open reading frame, and a bovine growth hormome polyadenylation site sequence. Line 1 contains 10 to 11 tandem copies of the transgene. The expression pattern of this transgene is the same as that for the endogenous gene from which the promoter is derived. (J:88764, J:271391)

Homozygous transgenic mice on a genetic background that involves C57BL/6 and CBA are viable and fertile. They do not display any gross behavioral abnormalities, but are smaller in size than wildtype littermates. Homozygous pups born to homozygous females have a high mortality rate. Transgenic mice display distinct expression of GFP in dendrites, axons, and soma of spinal motor neurons, allowing identification, isolation and purification of spinal motor neurons by FACS. GFP expression mimics endogenous HLXB9 expression pattern. Fluorescence is detected in axons, dendrites and processes of spinal motor neurons at embryonic day 9.5 to postnatal day 10 aged mice.
