habenula commissure





This transgenic line was created by the Gilmore lab “ Eight kilobases of sequence directly upstream of the Claudin B start codon were amplified from BAC zK241F11 by using the Expand Long Template PCR System (Roche). The resultant fragment was cloned into a vector containing lynEGFPpA (Koster and Fraser, 2001) flanked by sites for I-SceI, and the resultant construct was injected into one-cell zebrafish embryos by following the meganuclease transgenesis protocol (Thermes et al., 2002).”(Haas & Gilmore, 2006).

The Gilmore lab wanted to label the lateral line and neuromasts of the lateral line system, one allele of this transgenic also had EGFP expression in the nasal retina and telencephalon and has been used by other labs to study eye and telencephalic morphogenesis.
