Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:98920
Parent Cell Line:  v6.5 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x 129S4/SvJae)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Transactivator)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsAn optimized form of reverse tetracycline controlled transactivator (rtTA-M2) was inserted downstream of the Gt(ROSA)26Sor promoter and was followed by a PGK-puro selection cassette. This mutant form of rtTA termed M2 has five amino acid substitutions in the tetR moiety of tTA: S12G, E19G, A56P, D148E and H179R. This mutated form of transactivator protein has increased doxycycline sensitivity. Mice have widespread expression of the rtTA-M2 protein. (J:98920)

This mutation was originally created during the generation of mutant ES cell line KH2, which also contains a frt docking site downstream of the endogenous Col1a1 locus on Chr 11. The two mutations have subsequently been bred apart.
