Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Scgb1a1-Scnn1b)6608Bouc
Name: transgene insertion 6608, Richard Boucher
MGI ID: MGI:3605471
Synonyms: betaENaC-Tg
Transgene: Tg(Scgb1a1-Scnn1b)6608Bouc  Location: unknown  Genetic Position: Chr5, Syntenic
Strain of Origin:  (C3H x C57BL/6)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Scgb1a1-Scnn1b)6608Bouc expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsApproximately 2330 base pairs of 5' flanking sequence from the rat airway-specific Scgb1a1 (also called the Clara cell secretory protein) gene were inserted into the pTG1 vector upstream of exon 1 (104 base pairs, including the transcription initiation site), intron 1 (947 base pairs) and 10 base pairs of exon 2 from the mouse transthyretin gene; the protein-coding region of the mouse Scnn1b cDNA, inserted just downstream of the transthyretin exon 2 splice acceptor, is followed by the SV40 early-region polyadenylation signal. In situ hybridization with a transgene-specific antisense probe confirmed expression in airway epithelia of the lung. The insertion site was identified by in situ hybridization; it is located on chromosome 5 near the B-C1 chromosome band junction. (J:91139, J:101822, J:101823, J:220663)

A second transgenic line, Tg(Scgb1a1-Scnn1b)6047Bouc, was created in the same genetic background. The phenotypes of the two lines are indistinguishable.

Complete histological examination of multiple organs and systems reveals no pathology of organs other than lungs of transgenic mice.
