Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6 x SJL
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(RHO-SCA7)R7EJman expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene consists of a human rhodopsin promoter (containing the RER enhancer element), the full-length mutant human Sca7 gene carrying a 90 glutamine repeat expansion, and an SV40 intron and polyadenylation sequence. Transgene expression was observed in rod cells by immunofluorescence, and in retinal extracts by Western blot. (J:65411)
