Name: transgene insertion 18, Glenn Merlino
MGI ID: MGI:2447463
Synonyms: MT-HGF/SF, SF/HGF, Tg HFG
Transgene: Tg(Mt-HGFSF)18Lmb  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB/N
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Mt-HGFSF)18Lmb expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene consists of a mouse metallothionein 1 promoter, the entire mouse hepatocyte growth factor cDNA sequence, a human growth hormone polyadenylation site, and mouse Mt1 5' and 3' flanking regions. Northern blot analysis showed transgene expression in all adult transgenic tissues examined. ELIZA assay showed overexpression of transgene product in urine and serum samples. (J:34022)
