Vector typeMammalian Expression
Growth in Bacteria
- Promoter GFAP (glial fibrillary acidic protein)

A modified Cre (including an artificial intron, nuclear localization signal and HSV-TK polyA was derived from pACN (Bunting et al., (1999) Genes Dev 13: 1524-1528) to create GFAP-Cre as described in Garcia et al., (2004) Nat Neurosci. 7:1233-1241.
Adaptors were used to clone Cre into the NotI/SalI sites of the GFAP-HSV-TK plasmid described in Bush et al. (1998) Cell 93:189-201. Details of the original GFAP (glial fibrillary acidic protein) promoter cassette (GFAP-lacZ) can be found in Johnson et al. (1995) Glia 13:174-184.
