Table 1 Mus musculus miRNAs against inserted foreign genes and corresponding transgenic mice. Reporter genes like Neor, LacZ, Cre recombinase, DsRed, and TdTomato have widely been used to generate transgenic mice. However, due to their non-mammalian origin, (e.g., DsRed from Discosoma sp., GFP from Aequorea victoria, and LacZ from Escherichia coli K12), most of these genes may be potentially targeted by Mus musculus miRNAs once expressed in transgenic mice
