This is an unpublished line that expresses CreERT2 under control of the Sox17 gene locus.  These mice can be used for lineage tracing of Sox17 gene expression by tamoxifen injection.  The line is highly similar in design to Sox17-CreGFP mice which has been published.  The line was generated by Mark Magnuson in collaboration with Anne Grapin-Botton.

Additional Information

pSox17.LCA targeting vector contains 10.288 kb 5’ arm and 4.525 kb5 3’arm.  Lox66 and Lox2272 sites are inserted flanking PuTK selection marker for positive selection for targeting events with puromycin and negative selection for RMCE events with ganciclovir.

The exchange vector used for RMCE replaces Sox17 coding sequences with CreERT2. The vector also contains a Pgk-hygromycin resistance cassette flanked by tandem FRT sites, enabling excision of the cassette after germline transmission.
