Gene Affected S100b, GFP: Green Fluorescent Protein, jellyfish
Strain characteristics This transgenic rats expressed GFP in FS cells specifically in the anterior lobe. GFP is also expressed in other known S-100β expressing cells, i.e., brain astrocytes, adipocytes and chondrocytes.
Breeding Conditions Transgene dose not affect their breeding.
Genotyping Genotyping protocol for S100β-EGFP
