The Jackson Laboratory offers hundreds of cre-expressing and cre reporter strains, along with cre activity data to help select the appropriate strain.
Cre Recombinase Expression
Cre-Recombinase Expression: Germline/Embryonic Expression
Cre-Recombinase Expression: Inducible
Cre Reporter Strains
Cre Reporter strains allow the user to assess the function (degree of excision) of an individual Cre line. These strains are engineered to express a reporter gene (such as lacZ or GFP) following the removal of a loxP-flanked STOP cassette, thus marking cell lineages that can be targeted with a given Cre line. Some lines also express a distinct reporter prior to Cre-mediated excision. The JAX repository provides a wide selection of cre reporter lines that incorporate distinct reporter molecules.

Comparison of Selected Cre Reporter Strains
The Jackson Laboratory Cre Repository provides extensive characterization data for JAX cre-expressing strains.
The creportal annotates activity data for recombinase-expressing transgenes and knock-in alleles. It can be searched by promoter or anatomical structure.
