RBRC No. RBRC00806  
Type TransgeneCartagena  
Species Mus musculus  
Strain name GFP-LC3#53  
Former Common name No Data  
H-2 Haplotype No Data  
Background strain C57BL/6JJcl  
 1 Appearance black  
Genotype No Data  
Strain development Developed by Noboru Mizushima, National Institute for Basic Biology. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of C57BL/6 x (C57BL/6 x DBA/2)F1 fertilized eggs. The mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J.  
Strain description These transgenic mice express a fusion cDNA encoding enhanced GFP jointed at its C-terminus to rat microtubule-associated protein 1 light chain 3 beta under the control of the CAG promoter. The occurrence of autophagy in mouse tissues can be monitored by the GFP.  
Colony maintenance Carrier x Carrier, Noncarrier [or Crossing to C57BL/6JJcl]
