Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Cd8aCd8b)3Erob
Name: transgene insertion 3, Ellen Robey
MGI ID: MGI:3056809
Transgene: Tg(Cd8aCd8b)3Erob  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x DBA/2)F2
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Cd8aCd8b)3Erob expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe murine Cd8a and Cd8b1 coding sequences were placed under the control of the T cell-specific CD2 promoter. Six copies of the transgene incorporated into the genome. The resulting heterodimer complex expressed was the "CD8.1" variant that differs from the "CD8.2" variant complex normally expressed in C57BL/6 mice. Transgenic expression was detected on almost all thymocytes and T cells as determined by flow cytometry using antibodies that can distinguish the two CD8 variants. (J:93004)
