Strain Nomenclature: STOCK Tg(CRYD/Gli-luc)#Ech/Nci
Animal State: Cryoarchived Strains
Release Category (Required for MTA form): C1


Strain Description: The Gli-luc reporter mouse was generated using an eight GLI consensus sequence; it is an invivo tumor model to noninvasively image Gli activity. We demonstrated that Gli activity, measured by luciferase bioluminescence (BLI), correlates with tumor grade. The regions of Gli activity can be visualized after injection of luciferase substrate to give an accurate readout of Gli activation, providing visualization of tumor size and location. This mouse line, termed Gli-luc, expresses luciferase from a Gli responsive promoter activated by Gli, a primary target of SHH signaling. See references
