Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(CAG-lacZ-WGA)330Bbm
Name: transgene insertion 330, Allan Basbaum
MGI ID: MGI:3052324
Synonyms: Tg(ACTB-lacZ-WGA)330Bbm, Tg(CAG-lacZ-WGA)330Bbm, ZW, ZW19
Transgene: Tg(CAG-lacZ-WGA)330Bbm  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6J x CBA/J)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgene is comprised of a minimal immediate-early CMV enhancer/chicken beta-actin promoter driving ubiquitous expression of a lox-P flanked beta-galactosidase/neomycin phosphotransferase II (beta-geo) fusion gene that terminates in a strong, triple polyadenylation signal, followed by a C-terminally truncated wheat germ agglutinin coding sequence. Neuron-specific excision of the beta-geo gene by cre recombinase permits expression of the lectin, whose migration allows tracing of synapses involving the expressing cells. (J:92042)

Of three transgenic lines generated - called ZW5, ZW16 and ZW19 by Braz and colleagues (2002) - only ZW19, which exhibited the highest transmission rates, was propagated.
