Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Tyr-cre/ERT2)13Bos
Name: transgene insertion 13, Marcus Bosenberg
MGI ID: MGI:3641203
Synonyms: Tyr::CreER, Tyr::CreERT2, Tyr::CreERT2-Bos
Transgene: Tg(Tyr-cre/ERT2)13Bos  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer:    tamoxifen
Mutations:    Insertion, Intergenic deletion
Mutation detailsThis transgene consists of a 5.5 kb fragment of the Tyr promoter and a 3.6 kb fragment of the Tyr enhancer driving expression of a tamoxifen inducible form of cre recombinase. 3 lines were generated which all showed tamoxifen-inducible Cre activity in cutaneous melanocytes. This is a representative record for all 3 lines. Line 13 contains 2 copies of the transgene inserted into chromosome 2 (chr2:129,989,606; NCBI37/mm9) 7.8 kb downstream of Snrpb and 9.6 kb downstream of Tgm6 with a 3 kb deletion at the integration site. In addition three or more copies of the transgene integrated on chromosome 2 and resulted in ~3 kb deletion of this intergenic region between base pairs 130,160,936 and 130,163,877 [mouse mm10].
