Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(TcraTcrb)8Rest
Name: transgene insertion 8, Nicholas Restifo
MGI ID: MGI:3051150
Synonyms: Pmel-1, pmel-17, Pmel-I
Transgene: Tg(TcraTcrb)8Rest  Location: unknown  Genetic Position: Chr2, Syntenic
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(TcraTcrb)8Rest expresses 2 genes
Mutation detailsThese coinjected transgenes encode an H2-Db-restricted Valpha1 Vbeta13 T-cell receptor that recognizes a peptide comprising amino acids 25-33 of the protein known as pmel-17/gp100, a pigment biosynthetic enzyme that is encoded by the mouse Si (silver) gene and is expressed both in normal melanocytes and in malignant melanoma. The insertion is accompanied by a 157-bp deletion (chr2: 68,208,872?68,209,029 bp - build unknown). (J:85058, J:208902)
