Gene Affected CAG-loxP-ChR90-loxP-EGFP, COP4*: Stigeoclonium helveticum-derived channelrhodopsin (Chronos, ChR90), EGFP (Enhanced green fluorescent protein)
Origin This strain was established by using CISPR-Cas9 and SS-ODN (Yoshimi, et al, 2016) at Kyoto University. ChR90/EGFP fusion gene (Klapoetke, et al, 2014) sequence (between loxP sequences) under CAG promoter is knock-in at the Rosa26 locus. Background strain: Long-Evans strain (charles river)
Strain characteristics ChR90-EGFP is expressed in the presence of Cre. When Cre is expressed in the cerebral cortex, strong GFP expression is detected in a part of glial cells and vessels. In neurons, the expression levels of GFP is weaker than glial cells. The pattern of GFP expression in other organ is not examined.
Breeding Conditions maintain in heterozygous condition.
Genotyping Identified by PCR analysis (primers...forward: ACAGGCCGATCATGAAGAAC, Reverse: ATCCACCTGAGCAACCTGAC). product size: 151 bp (KI rats)
