Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Myh6-tTA)55Rbns
Name: transgene insertion 55, Jeffrey Robbins
MGI ID: MGI:3757936
Synonyms: alpha-MHC-tTA
Transgene: Tg(Myh6-tTA)55Rbns  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Transactivator)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThis transgene consists of the tetracycline transactivator (a chimeric tTA fusion protein of the Tn10 Tet resistance operon in E.coli and the carboxy-terminal portion of the transactivator protein from herpes simplex virus -VP16) under the control of thecardiac specific mouse alpha myosin heavy chain. Although transgene protein expression is not detected in the heart via Western blot, when transgenics are crossed with Tg(tetop-lacZ)2Mam, uniform and robust expression of lacZ is seen in the hearts, indicating that very low levels of tTA protein are present to induce lacZ expression.
