Transgenic Allele Detail
Symbol: Mcph1Tg(HLA-A2.1)1Enge
Name: microcephaly, primary autosomal recessive 1; transgene insertion 1, Victor H Engelhard
MGI ID: MGI:3056375
Gene: Mcph1  Location: Chr8:18645147-18853205 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr8, 10.24 cM, cytoband A3
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence, Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Duplication, Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgene contains the full length HLA-A2.1 gene. Expression of human class I MHC Ag HLA-A2.1 was detected on cells from homozygous transgenic spleen, bone marrow, and thymus. Line 1 inserted into the gene at 18736683-18757058 (Build GRCm38/mm10) resulting in a duplication. The duplication results in a functional knock-out. Founder line 1 has a copy number of 3-8.

Expression of this human class I molecule in transgenic mice does not result in expansion of the number of cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) precursors specific for other human class I Ag, HLA-B27 or HLA-A2.2.
