Transgenic Allele Detail
Symbol: Grm7Tg(SMN2)89Ahmb
Name: glutamate receptor, metabotropic 7; transgene insertion 89, Arthur H M Burghes
MGI ID: MGI:2448989
Synonyms: SMN2
Gene: Grm7  Location: Chr6:110645581-111567230 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 51.19 cM
Strain of Origin:  FVB/N
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Hypomorph, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Grm7Tg(SMN2)89Ahmb expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA 35.5 kb genomic fragment containing the human survival motor neuron 2 (SMN2) gene and promoter was used for the transgene. The transgene is ubiquitously expressed in all tissues examined by Northern blot analysis. Line 89 carries 1 copy of the transgene integrated into intron 4 of the gene. RT-PCR confirmed reduced expression of the gene the transgene is integrated into. (J:60592, J:174332)
