Basic Information

Strain Name
C57BL/6-Ucp1 tm1(iCre)Bcgen/Bcgen
Stock Number
110134
Common Name
B-Ucp1-iCre Mice
Source/Investigator
Bcgen (Beijing Biocytogen Co., Ltd)
Related Genes
Ucp1 (uncoupling protein 1); Ucp; Slc25a7; AI385626
Background
C57BL/6
Appearance
Black
Genotypes
Ucp1 iCre (wt/mut)
Development

In this strain, Cre recombinase expression is under the control of Ucp1 promoter. When crossed with a strain containing a loxP site-flanked sequence of interest, Cre-mediated recombination results in deletion of the flanked sequence in Ucp1 expressing cells.

NCBI Gene ID

Targeting Strategy

An IRES-iCre sequence cassette was placed between the coding sequence of exon 6 and 3’UTR of the Ucp1 gene using C57BL/6 embryonic stem cells. Neo cassette flanked by frt sites was inserted at least 300 bp downstream of 3’UTR. This strain was maintained on a C57BL/6 genetic background.
