Tg(slc17a6b: DsRed)nns9Tg

Tg(slc17a6b: DsRed)nns9Tg

About

 Slc17a6b is a vesicular glutamate transporter that that mediates the uptake of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate into vesicles in the presynaptic terminals of excitatory neurons. This BAC transgenic line from the Yoshihara lab drives the expression of DSRed in glutamatergic neurons. Expression can be seen in many neurons throughout the brain. Strong expression in the dorsal and ventral habenular subnuclei, olfactory bulbs, the pallium and optic tectum

Et(fos:Gal4-VP16)s1137t

About

 This transgenic originates from Herwig Baier’s laboratory and is one of many enhancer trap Gal4 lines created by them. It shows dense expression of kaede in the telencephalon and throughout all the habenula subnuclei. 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).
