This model possesses the Halorhodopsin fused to TdTomato, sitting behind a floxed stop codon in the Rosa26 locus under the control of the CAG promoter. By introducing Cre-recombinase by crossing with one of our Cre-driver rats, neuronal subtype-specific expression of halorhodopsin and TdTomato will be observed anywhere Cre- is expressed. The Halorhodopsin rat is useful for applications requiring tissue specific expression, including optogenetics and breeding with Cre-driver lines.
