Description

B6.Cg-Tg(Fabp4-cre)1Rev/J

Adipocyte and macrophage cre

Fabp4-Cre

Transgenic mice expressing Cre recombinase driven by mouse Fabp4 promoter. These FABP4-Cre transgenic mice are a Cre-lox tool useful for deletion of floxed sequences in brown, white adipose tissue and macrophages.
Application
For generation of adipocyte- or macrophage- specific knockout mice (...Further Info)

B6;FVB-Tg(Adipoq-cre)1Evdr/J

Adiponectin-Cre

Adipoq-Cre

Transgenic mice expressing Cre recombinase driven by the mouse adiponectin (Adipoq) promoter/enhancer regions. Adipoq-Cre BAC transgenic mice are a Cre-lox tool for deletion of floxed sequences in white adipose tissue and brown adipose tissue, but not in activated or resident macrophages.
Application
For generation of adipocyte specific knockout mouse model

Disease model for type 1 diabetes. Diabetes in NOD/ShiLtJ mice is characterized by insulitis, a leukocytic infiltration of the pancreatic islets (...Further Info)

B6.129P2-Trp53tm1Brn/J (p53-fl)

p53-fl

p53fl/fl

When these p53flox mice are bred to mice with a Cre recombinase gene under the control of a promoter of interest, Trp53 expression is deleted in the tissue of interest. Exons 2-10 are flanked by loxP sites in this conditional targeted mutation. Mice homozygous for the floxed allele do not show any increase in disease incidence for at least a year. When bred to mice with a cre recombinase gene under the control of a promoter of interest, expression is deleted in the tissue of interest (...Further Info)

beta-cell Cre

Ins-Cre

Transgenic mice express Cre recombinanse driven by rat insulin II promoter.
Application
For generation of pancreatic beta cell specific knockout mice 

(...Further Info)
