Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(GFAP-TVA)5Hev
Name: transgene insertion 5, Harold E Varmus
MGI ID: MGI:2663943
Synonyms: Gtv-a
Transgene: Tg(GFAP-TVA)5Hev  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  mixed
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgene consists of the astrocyte-specific human glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) promoter, TVA gene (avian cell surface receptor), and a portion of the mouse protamine (Prm1) gene which supplies intronic sequence and a polyadenylation site. The transgene expresses the quail TVA for subgroup A avian leukosis viruses. (J:69971)

The construct was injected into embryos generated by crossing an FVB/N mouse to a (C57BL/6 x BALB/c)F1 mouse. Glial cells in transgenic mice are specifically susceptible to infection by replication-competent ALV splice acceptor (RCAS) retroviral vectors.
