Strain development Developed by Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, Institute for Frontier Medical Sciences, Kyoto University in 2003. The construct was injected into RF8 ES cells derived from 129S4/SvJae. 129, C57BL/6 and DBA/2 mixed background.  
Strain description Nanog-GFP transgenic mice. Nanog gene is a good candidate marker for maintaining pluripotent differentiation, because of the loss of pluripotent epiblast in Nanog KO mice, the tendency of Nanog-null ES cells to differenciate spontaneously, and the capability of Nanog-overexpressed ES cells to maintain self-renewal independently of leukaemia inhibitory factor (LIF). This Nanog-GFP transgene was generated by insertion of GFP-IRES-puromycin resistance gene (Puror) cassette into the 5' untranslated region of a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) containing the mouse Nanog gene. ES cells with the Nanog-GFP transgene were positive for GFP, but became negative when differentiation was induced. Using this system, pluripotent stem cells competent for germline chimaeras can be induced from Nanog-GFP transgenic mouse fibroblasts by introduction of candidate genes for pluripotency. Tg homozygous and hemizygous mice were viable and fertile. Male-biased sex ratios was observed (199 females : 261 males)(details unknown).
