Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Ckm-DGAT2)10Far
Name: transgene insertion 10, Bob Farese
MGI ID: MGI:3717406
Synonyms: MCK-DGAT2
Transgene: Tg(Ckm-DGAT2)10Far  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NHsd
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Ckm-DGAT2)10Far expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe targeting construct was designed with 4 kb of the mouse muscle creatine kinase (MCK) promoter sequence placed upstream of a 1.2 kb human acyl-CoA:diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (DGAT2) cDNA sequence, followed by a 2.2 kb human growth hormone minigene (providing the polyA signal). The transgene was microinjected into C57BL/6NHsd fertilized eggs and the resulting transgenic offspring were bred to C57BL/6NHsd. Founder line 10 mice were established. (J:129495)
