Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Mt1-RET)304Ina
Name: transgene insertion 304, Izumi Nakashima
MGI ID: MGI:3039777
Synonyms: MT-ret
Transgene: Tg(Mt1-RET)304Ina  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (BALB/c x C57BL/6) X BALB/c
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsHuman RET proto-oncogene cDNA driven by the mouse metallothionein 1 promoter/enhancer. This mouse is predicted to have 5 copies of the transgene. Northern blot analysis revealed high levels of transgene expression in tumors and varying levels in melanin-producing cells of other tissues in mice of this line, including skin, muscle and Harderian glands.
