Strain development Developed by Masashi Kato, Nagoya University Graduate School of Medicine. C57BL/6 background. The Dct-lacZ Tg allele was generated by Ian Jackson, Western General Hospital.  
Strain description Mt1-RET/Dct-lacZ Tg mice. These mice express the lacZ in melanocytes under the control of Dct promoter and the human RET under the control of the mouse MT1 promoter/enhancer. Mt1-RET homozygous mutant mice are embryonic lethal.  
Colony maintenance Mt1-RET: Carrier x Noncarrier; Dct-lacZ: Carrier x Carrier (Homozygote x Homozygote)
