Synonyms: pDPcol2.3rtTA-TRECre-HS4


EXRC line: #51

Non-standard MTA required: No

Transgene description: Line made by coinjecting 3 separate constructs in an I Sce-I reaction.

1. chondrocyte-specific regulatory elements from the 5’ region and first intron of  X.tropicalis col2a1 driving the tetracycline/doxycycline conditional transcription factor rtTA.

2. Tetracycline/doxycycline response element TRE driving Cre recombinase

3. crystallin gamma A driving GFP as a marker for integration.

Phenotype: Constitutive GFP in the lens. Inducible labeling of cartilage when crossed with a floxed line and treated with Doxycycline.
