Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(LCAT)A31Ssf
Name: transgene insertion A31, Silvia Santamarina-Fojo
MGI ID: MGI:3696854
Synonyms: hLCAT-tg subline A31 (U line hemizygous 120 copy), line T3
Transgene: Tg(LCAT)A31Ssf  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NCrl
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(LCAT)A31Ssf expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene is a 6.2 kb human genomic DNA fragment containing the entire lecithin-cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) gene plus 851 bp of 5' and 1,134 bp of 3' flanking sequence. Based on Southern blot analysis, hemizygous mice of this founder line harbor 120 transgene copies. The plasma level of LCAT in mice with this transgene is 109-fold that of endogenous LCAT in non-transgenic mice. Northern blot analysis of various tissues from transgenic mice demonstrates expression of LCAT primarily in the liver, with much weaker expression in testis, brain, heart and lung. (J:118356)
