This transgenic originates from Herwig Baier’s laboratory and is one of many enhancer trap Gal4 lines created by them. Driving Kaede expression in the posterior tuberculum,hypothalamus and cerebellum. There is a very interesting tract labelled that projects between the midbrain tegmentum and posterior tuberculum. The tract skirts the tectal neuropil. The insertion of this transgene is currently unmapped.
