Highly selective in vivo labeling of subcutaneous white adipocyte precursors with Prx1-Cre.

Sanchez-Gurmaches J, Hsiao WY, Guertin DA - Stem Cell Reports (2015)

Bottom Line: Here, we show that the majority of the precursor and mature subcutaneous white adipocytes in adult C57Bl/6 mice are labeled by Prx1-Cre.In sharp contrast, few to no brown adipocytes or visceral white adipocytes are marked by Prx1-Cre.This suggests that Prx1-Cre-mediated recombination may be useful for making depot-restricted genetic manipulations in subcutaneous white adipocyte precursor cells, particularly when targeting genes with fat-specific functions.
