 Origin This strain was established at Jichi Medical School. 
 Strain Characteristics This strain expresses the Cre recombinase ubiquitously driven by CAG promoter. The majority of expression of the transgene is detected in the skeletal muscles. Transgene was integrated into the Chr X. 
 Breeding Conditions Good breeding performance.
