#48 CAG-Venus [Xla.Tg(CAG:Venus)Ueno]

Line name: Xla.Tg(CAG:Venus)Ueno

Synonyms: CAG-Venus


EXRC line: #48

Non-standard MTA required: No

Transgene description: The CAG-Venus plasmid consists of the Venus variant of YFP reporter cloned into the pCAGGS expression vector (Nagai et al., 2002; Sakamaki et al., 2005). pCAGGS drives expression under the control of the CAG promoter [human cytomegalovirus (CMV) early enhancer element and chicken beta-actin promoter], and is followed by the rabbit β-globin polyA signal sequence (Niwa et al., 1991). REMI

Phenotype: Ubiquitous expression of Venus.
