Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Ins2-Nos2)40Okam
Name: transgene insertion 40, Hiroshi Okamoto
MGI ID: MGI:3706439
Synonyms: line 40
Transgene: Tg(Ins2-Nos2)40Okam  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x DBA/2)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Ins2-Nos2)40Okam expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct was composed of the rat insulin II promoter and the 3.5 kb cDNA fragment containing the entire mouse Nos2 gene coding region with the SV40 intron/polyadenylation signal ligated to it. Line 31 was subsequently established. Western blot analysis shows expression of Nos2 in pancreatic islets, but nowhere else. (J:45520)

J:116040 uses transgenic Nos2 mice with no identification of the line. The two lines created in J:45520 are similar, with line 40 having a more severe phenotype. Assumption was made that line 40 was used subsequently for this reason. rpb 05/01/2007
