Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(DM15)26Bew
Name: transgene insertion 26, Be Wieringa
MGI ID: MGI:3054417
Transgene: Tg(DM15)26Bew  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(DM15)26Bew expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThis transgene contains a 14 kb genomic fragment including all of the human DM15 gene and the last exon from the upstream gene DMWD. Two founder lines were generated Tg26 and Tg15 with 25 and 20 copies of the transgene integrated, respectively. Expression is seen in the muscle and smooth muscle containing tissues. Tg26 has a higher level of expression and more severe phenotype compared to Tg15 which has lower expression and a milder version of the same phenotype seen in Tg26. (J:33711)

Younger mice do not exhibit typical symptoms of Dystrophia Myotonica 1 (J:33711), however older mice (11-15 months of age) develop the distinctive traits of Dystrophia Myotonica 1 (J:93614).
