Common Name
B-Alb-iCreERT2 mice
Background
C57BL/6
Catalog Number

Application
B-Alb-iCreERT2 mice expressing icreERT2 under the control of the Alb promoter allow efficient Tamoxifen-dependent recombination of floxed DNA selectively in hepatocytes.

Description

Homozygous mice for the targeted mutation are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. 

Phenotype Analysis

  • Analysis of liver by immunofluorescence (IF).

Control: without tamoxifen treatment; HNF4α: a regulator of liver-specific gene expression.Immunofluorescence for HNF4α, tdTomato, and DAPI on liver sections shows Alb-iCreERT2(Mut/+), CAG-LSL-tdTomato(Mut/+) mice labeled almost all hepatocytes after tamoxifen treatment.

  • Analysis of kidney by immunofluorescence (IF).

Control: without tamoxifen treatment; HNF4α: a regulator of liver-specific gene expression.Immunofluorescence for HNF4α, tdTomato, and DAPI on kidney sections shows Alb-iCreERT2(Mut/+), CAG-LSL-tdTomato(Mut/+) mice were not labeled after tamoxifen treatment.
