Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Tcra2C,Tcrb2C)1Dlo
Name: transgene insertion 1, Dennis Y Loh
MGI ID: MGI:3621454
Synonyms: 2C TCR, 2C TCR-Tg
Transgene: Tg(Tcra2C,Tcrb2C)1Dlo  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57L x SJL)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Tcra2C,Tcrb2C)1Dlo expresses 2 genes
Mutation detailsThe transgene constructs encode a T cell receptor (TCR) that recognizes the Ld class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigen SIYRYYGL peptide in the context of the H2b MHC class I molecule. Rearranged genomic cosmids containing the entire Tcra and Tcrb coding and promoter regions from the cytotoxic T cell clone 2C were isolated and coinjected into fertilized eggs. Transgenic H2b mice have large numbers of T cells in the periphery that express the transgenic TCR. In the periphery of transgenic H2d mice, T cells expressing the transgenic TCR are deleted.
