 Gene DsRed: red fluorescent protein
 Origin This strain was established at Jichi Medical School. This transgenic rat was originated from Crlj:WI. 
 Strain Characteristics This transgenic strain expresses the DsRed2 liver-specific under the direction of the mouse albumin enhancer/promoter. The expression level of NBRP No.0277 (line 34) is higher than NBRP No.0278 (line 42). 
 Breeding Conditions Good breeding performance.
