Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Oxt/EGFP)AI03Wsy
Name: transgene insertion AI03, W Scott Young
MGI ID: MGI:3655247
Synonyms: AI03, Oxytocin-Gfp
Transgene: Tg(Oxt/EGFP)AI03Wsy  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x SJL)F2
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgene containing the mouse oxytocin gene including 0.47 kb upstream of the transcriptional start site, and exons 2 and 3 of the vasopressin gene was modified by inserting the EGFP gene (Clonetech) in-frame into exon 3 of the oxytocin gene. The transgene is selectively expressed in oxytocin-magnocellular neurons of the paraventricular and supraoptic nuclei of the thalamus. (J:111958, J:111959)
