Abstract

We previously reported the efficient targeted introduction of transgenes into the genomic DNA of the common marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) using CRISPR-Cas9. In this study, we generated a marmoset embryonic stem cell (ESC) line that ubiquitously expresses the tamoxifen-inducible Cre-driver ERT2CreERT2. We validated the pluripotency of the ESC line and also successfully demonstrated the temporal control of the Cre-driver in a tamoxifen-dependent manner in the ESCs. This ESC line, named ActiCre-B1, will be a valuable resource for in vitro investigation of phenotypes related to embryonic lethality by targeted knockout of functionally important genes.
