Former Common name Kaede (WK-m15), BALB-CAG-Kaede Tg#15  
H-2 Haplotype No Data  
Background strain No Data  
 1 Appearance No Data  
Genotype No Data  
Strain development Developed by Michio Tomura, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine and Yoshihiro Miwa, Graduate School of Comprehensive Human Sciences, University of Tsukuba. The transgene was injected into the pronuclei of B6D2F1 fertilized eggs. The Kaede cDNA was provided by Atsushi Miyawaki, RIKEN Brain Science Institute. The Tg mice were backcrossed to BALB/c over 22 times.  
Strain description These transgenic mice expressing a Kaede, photoconvertible fluorescence protein under the control of the CAG promoter. The expression of green fluoresce of Kaede mice can be converted to red on irradiation with UV or violet light.
