Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Ins2-Tnf)17Flv
Name: transgene insertion 17, Richard Flavell
MGI ID: MGI:3764663
Synonyms: RIP-TNFalpha
Transgene: Tg(Ins2-Tnf)17Flv  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  Not Applicable
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Ins2-Tnf)17Flv expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene construct contained the murine Tnf-alpha gene driven by the rat insulin 2 promoter (RIP). Founder mice carried the transgene with copy number ranging from 2-20 per genome. Line 17 was used for further study. Transcripts of the transgene were detected by Northern blot only in the pancreas of the mice. (J:91820)
