Et(fos:Gal4-VP16)s1168t

About

 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.

Tg(1.4dlx5a-dlx6a:GFP)ot1

About

Tg(1.4dlx5a-dlx6a:GFP)ot1 larvae express GFP in subpallial neurons γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-expressing neurons. Several other brain regions also show GFP expression in this transgenic line such as the optic tectum and cerebellum.
 

 Dlx homeobox genes play essential roles in the differentiation, migration and survival of subpallial precursor cells that will later give rise to diverse subtypes of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-expressing neurons. They also participate in the regulation of the Gad genes encoding the enzymes necessary for GABA synthesis (Yu et al., 2011).
