Product Description:

The strain is New Zealand White (NZW). Transgenic rabbit founder was produced by microinjection of red fluorescent protein (RFP) expression gene into the pronuclear nucleus of a fertilized rabbit egg. The RFP rabbits exhibit bright red fluorescence when exposed to light at the wavelength of 584 nm excitation maximum. The cell culture of ear explant
tissue indicates the RFP expression over to passage 25-30 under fluorescent microscopy.

NZW founder (male) (RFP+/-) mates with several females (RFP-/-) to generate about 50% positive heterozygous RFP F1 with genotype (RFP+/-). We are currently developing homozygous RFP (RFP+/+) rabbits, and the homozygous line will be available in the beginning of 2013. The location of RFP transgene on the chromosome is under determination.

All heterozygous RFP F1 rabbits (RFP+/-) are genotyped before sell. Quality control makes sure RFP gene is transmitted in all cell type, the animals and derivative tissues/cells express RFP.

The new lines of RFP rabbits can be used for study many human related diseases, such as CVD, HIV, regenerative disease and cancer. The specific relevant or derived RFP rabbit cell types can be used for gene therapy in animal models. RFP transgenic rabbits can also be used for deriving embryonic stem cells (from the early embryos), induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, and further differentiation into many specific cell types. Those cells carry the RFP gene and can be traceable during the development and differentiation, as well as cell migration during the process, especially during the study of cell based therapy.
