Cdh5(PAC)-CreERT2 Mouse

Random Transgenic

Cdh5(PAC)-CreERT2 Random Transgenic Mouse Model

C57BL/6 Background

  • Model #
  • Genotype
  • Nomenclature
  • 13073-F
  • 13073-M
  • An inducible cre deleter under the control of the vascular endothelial cadherin (Cdh5(PAC)) promoter
  • Cre recombination is inducible via administration of tamoxifen
  • Useful for study of angiogenesis, atherosclerosis and neovascularization
  • Non-induced Cdh5(PAC)-CreERT2 mice demonstrate no Cre recombinase activity, while tamoxifen-induced Cdh5(PAC)-CreERT2 mice demonstrate high levels of recombinase-mediated gene deletion in vascular endothelial cells (95%+).
Orders by weight: Taconic cannot accept orders by weight for this model. Please note that shipments may contain animals with a larger weight variation.


The Cdh5(PAC)-CreERT2 Mouse was developed in the laboratory of Ralf Adams at the London Research Institute. The model was generated by microinjecting a transgene containing a genomic Cdh5(PAC) promoter fragment fused to a CreERT2 cDNA into B6xCBA F1 zygotes. Founder lines were backcrossed to C57BL/6 for at least five generations. Taconic received embryos from CRT in 2013.

Limited quantities of breeders are available for purchase after execution of a license.

Ordering Note: Animals ordered at 4 weeks of age require rapid genotyping and a $40.00 per mouse charge will be added.
