Summary Attributions Transgene

Line Name: Xla.Tg.(Rno.elas:DNthra-GFP;cryga:GFP)Brown

Synonym: Elastase:TRDN-GFP; Elastase::TRDN-GFP3
Species: Xenopus laevis
Background Strain: Unknown
Paternal Line:
Maternal Line:
Color Morph:
Phenotype Description: GFP expression in the pancreas (specifically in the nucleus of the acinar cells of NF54 tadpoles), and in lens. Exocrine pancreases of transgenic tadpoles expressing a dominant negative form of the Thyroid Hormone (TH) receptor controlled by the elastase promoter are resistant to TH.
Breeding Type: OUTBRED
Description: 205 bp rat (Rno) elastase (elas) promoter driving dominant negative (DN) form of the thyroid receptor alpha (thra) (aka TRDN), fused to GFP (fusion indictated by hyphen). pElastase-TRDN-GFP construct was coinjected with Xenopus gamma-crystallin GFP (from Grainger Lab) to produce this double transgenic line.
Lab of Origin: Brown Lab
