Embryonic vascular development is achieved through the complex arrays of differentiation, proliferation, migration and mutual interaction of different cell types, and visualization as well as purification of unique cell populations are fundamental in studying its detailed mechanisms using in vivo experimental models. We previously demonstrated that Tmem100 was a novel endothelial gene encoding a small transmembrane protein, and that Tmem100 null mice showed embryonic lethality due to severe impairment of vascular formation. In the present study, we generated an EGFP reporter mouse line using a 216 kb genomic region containing mouse Tmem100 gene. Read More
