Abstract:Fluorescent proteins with light wavelengths within the optical window are one of the
improvements in in vivo imaging techniques. Near-infrared (NIR)
fluorescent protein (iRFP) is a stable, nontoxic protein that emits fluorescence within
the NIR optical window without the addition of exogenous substrate. However, studies
utilizing an in vivo iRFP model have not yet been published. Here, we
report the generation of transgenic iRFP mice with ubiquitous NIR fluorescence expression.
iRFP expression was observed in …
