Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Rbp3-SV40)IT-2Jjw
Name: transgene insertion IT-2, Jolene J Windle
MGI ID: MGI:2385652
Synonyms: IRBP-Tag
Transgene: Tg(Rbp3-SV40)IT-2Jjw  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (BALB/cAnNHsd x C57BL/6NHsd)F2
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation details2.7 kb of the SV40 T antigen gene fused to 1.9 kb of mouse RBP3 promoter sequences was used as the transgene. Promoter sequences from -1783 to +101 were used to drive expression of the transgene in photoreceptor cells. Northern blot analysis confirmed transgene expression in the retina and pineal of transgenic animals. (J:60231)

Transgenic animals develop retinal and pineal tumors by 10-12 weeks of age with 100% penetrance. Transgenic animals carrying the greatest transgene copy number (15-50) also displayed a 25%-30% decrease in body weight compared to non-transgenic animals.
