[Generation of Mx-cre transgenic mice].Yi Chuan Xue Bao. 2001; 28(4):313-6.YC
To generate the transgenic mice expressing cyclization recombination enzyme, the recombinant gene, in which the coding region of cre gene is derived by the promoter of mouse Mx gene, was microinjected into pronuclei of fertilized mouse eggs. Founders of transgenic mice harbouring the recombinant gene were screened by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) at genomic DNA level and confirmed by Southern blot. One line of Mx-cre transgenic mice was obtained. Then, the Mx-cre transgenic mouse line was cultured and propagated.
