Strain information
Strain ID TG951
Strain Name HBK11-Tg(ABCB5-EGFP)
Strain Type Transgenics
Characteristics It was suggested as a cancer stem cell marker, because Schatton et al.(Nature 451, 345–349, 2008) reported that ABCB5 was expressed in human melanoma tumor-initiating cells. This hypothesis is not verified in this Tg-line. Transgene: Medaka ABCB5 promoter was ligated to EGFP.
