What is a GFP mouse?

UBC-GFP transgenic mice express green fluorescent protein directed by the human ubiqutin C promoter, and were discovered to have transgene insertion on chromosome 17 resulting in linkage to H-2b MHC haplotype (see details below). This transgene is also available on BALB/CBy as Stock No.

How are fluorescent mice made?

A technique which enables the earliest stages of cancer to be observed in living mice has been developed. To do this they genetically-engineered mice by adding a fluorescent gene from fireflies to them. In this case the fluorescence gene is switched on when the normal p16 gene is activated.

What is MIP GFP mice?

These “MIP-GFP” transgenic mice express Enhanced Green Fluorescent Protein (EGFP) under the control of the mouse insulin 1 promoter. This mutant mouse strain may be useful in studies of diabetes and pancreatic beta islet cell biology.

Is DsRed the same as RFP?

The drFP583 protein, the gene for which was optimized for expression in mammalian cells, became the first commercially available red fluorescent protein (RFP), named DsRed for Discosoma sp.

Is mCherry a membrane protein?

To characterize cell and tissue dynamics during the formation of the cardiovascular system in mice, we generated a novel transgenic mouse line, Tg(Flk1∷myr-mCherry), in which endothelial cell membranes are brightly labeled with mCherry, a red fluorescent protein.

What is the origin of the red fluorescent protein?

DsRed is a basic (constitutively fluorescent) red fluorescent protein published in 1999, derived from Discosoma sp..

Can DsRed be used as a reporter protein in yeast cells?

In this study, we show the use of the red fluorescent protein DsRed as a reporter in yeast cells. Based on the pUG plasmids, a new set of vectors expressing DsRed was constructed, allowing the production of amino-terminal (N-terminal) and carboxyl-terminal (C-terminal) fusion proteins.

What are the four colors of retrovirally expressed fluorescent proteins?
