Van Andel Research Institute ScientificReport2013 Cryosection of a mouse calvaria. In using tissue-specific knock-out mouse models, the promoter must have precise specificity. Here we used the mTmG reporter model to demonstrate that Ocn-Cre expresses specifically in the bone cells. Top panel: Cells were stained with DAPI (blue) for nucleic acids. Bone cells are expressing GFP (green), while all other cells are expressing Tomato (red). Lower panel: A differential interference contrast image with DAPI stain of the same area.
