JIC Enhancer Traps

This is a collection of 1957 Ds enhancer trap insertion lines. Each line carries a single Ds transposon as a stable insertion in the genome. The Ac transposase utilized to induce transposition has been segregated out of the line. Transpositions were selected to occur at random locations in the genome. The presence of the transposon can be verified by resistance to kanamycin, and absence of the transposase can be verified by resistance to NAM.

These lines were donated by Prof. Caroline Dean, John Innes Centre.
