To assess the feasibility of using the renin promoter for expressing Cre recombinase in juxtaglomerular (JG) cells only, we generated five independent transgenic mouse lines (designated hRen-Cre) expressing Cre recombinase under control of a 12.2-kb human renin promoter. In the kidneys of adult mice Cre mRNA (RT-PCR) was found in the renal cortex, with Cre protein (immunohistochemistry) being ...
