Note Type Note Reference
strain_other This transgenic rat aims to establish Venus-labeled GABAergic neuron. There are 2 strains (A line: NBRP No.0554 and B line: NBRP No.0555) and expression and distribution of YFP* (Venus) are different from between the strains. In the frontal cortex, YFP* was expressed in 98% of GABAergic A line and 93% of that of B line. 1302502
strain_reproduction Identify the transgenic rats by genotyping from progeny of crossing of heterozygous transgenic rat and wild type Wistar rat. 1302502
