The Jackson Laboratory Cre Repository

The JAX Cre Repository's aim is to provide the scientific community with a centralized, comprehensive set of well-characterized Cre Driver lines and related information resources.

Available strains include Cre expressing strains, inducible Cre strains, Cre reporter strains, and loxP-flanked (floxed) strains.

You can also go to creportal to search for Cre-expressing strains by promoter or site of activity, view detailed characterization of Cre activity including images, and get links to strains available in repositories.

The Cre Repository was funded by the National Center for Research Resources (grant numbers RR032656, RR026117 and RR001183) and is currently supported by the Office of Research Infrastructure Programs/OD (grant numbers OD011190-02 and OD010972-35) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Additional support comes from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR grant number DE020052), the NIH Neuroscience Blueprint and an anonymous foundation. Please reference these grants in citations acknowledging use of the resource.
