Per2-Luciferase knock-in mouse

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Mus musculus


  1. Resource Description
    This mouse expresses a fusion protein involving the circadian clock gene Period 2, and firefly luciferase. In the presence of the substrate luciferin, cultured tissue from this mouse emits light in proportion to the presence of Per2, dynamically over time. This is used as an index of circadian clock status in the tissue. Homozygous on a C57BL/6 background.
