Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(CD8aCD8b)57Scr
Name: transgene insertion 57, The Scripps Research Institute
MGI ID: MGI:3055355
Transgene: Tg(CD8aCD8b)57Scr  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(CD8aCD8b)57Scr expresses 2 genes
Mutation detailsThe transgene contains the human CD8 alpha and beta chain genes driven by the T cell-specific Lck promoter. CD8alpha-alpha homodimers were expressed on 62% of thymocytes and CD8alpha-beta heterodimers on 14% of thymocytes. Peripheral T cells preferentially expressed the CD8alpha-beta heterodimers at a 4:1 ratio. Human CD8alpha was detected on both CD4+ and CD8+ T cells. (J:92994)
