Strain development The expression construct was created by cloning cDNAs encoding the selected genes and the promoter into a plasmid vector. After verification of the construct by nucleotide sequencing, the transcriptional unit was cleaved out with restriction enzymes, purified with biochemical method and used for microinjection. The offspring were initially examined by PCR genotyping. The in vivo expression was checked by crossing the mice with two Cre-reporter lines.  
Strain description MuCreA contains a transcriptional unit consisting of a muscle-specific promoter (alpha-actin promoter) and Cre recombinase gene. The mouse is used to make myogenic-specific knock-outs by crossing with mice that have a floxed gene. The MuCreA produces rapid and early cleavage of floxed genes from all differentiated myogenic cells, including cardiac myocytes and skeletal myotubes.
