Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Ins2-Cxcl13)1Cys
Name: transgene insertion 1, Jason G Cyster
MGI ID: MGI:3641325
Synonyms: RIP-BLC1, RIP-CXCL13
Transgene: Tg(Ins2-Cxcl13)1Cys  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x DBA/2)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Ins2-Cxcl13)1Cys expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene comprises the full-length Cxcl13 (BLC) cDNA under control of the rat insulin 2 promoter. Immunostaining of adjacent pancreatic sections with antibodies to insulin and to CXCL13 demonstrated that all the beta cells express CXCL3; the intensity of staining for CXCL3 is several fold greater in pancreatic beta cells than in follicular stromal cells, where it is expressed from the endogenous gene. No expression is detected in liver or kidney. (J:77238, J:110548)

Three lines, having 4, 9 and 19 estimated copies of the transgene, were generated. Mice of all three lines exhibited similar B cell-enriched lymphocyte infiltration of the pancreatic beta cells. The line with 19 transgene copies, designated line 1, was used for further analyses.
