Strain Protocols

Strain Information
Strain Code: 01XGL
Strain Name: B6.Cg-Tg(ED-L2-cre)267Jkat/Nci
Gene Symbol: Cre
Protocol Information
Allele: Tg(ED-L2-cre)267Jkat
Protocol Number: 1
Introductory Comment: For this strain, we assay for the presence of the Cre transgene. Primers C001 / C002 amplify the Cre gene, while primers C003 / C004 amplify an endogenous mouse gene, acting as an internal positive control
