Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Cryaa-TAg)7488Lmgd
Name: transgene insertion 7488, Laboratory of Mammalian Genes and Development, Heiner Westphal
MGI ID: MGI:3764829
Synonyms: a-crys-Tag, alpha-crys-Tag
Transgene: Tg(Cryaa-TAg)7488Lmgd  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  Not Applicable
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct consists of 416 bp of the 5' flanking sequence from the murine alpha-A crystallin gene (Cryaa) fused to the coding sequence of the SV40 early region. Transgenic F0 animals generally died prematurely by 4 months of age so only one line, 7488, bearing 2 copies of the transgene, was propagated. Expression is lens-specific. Transgene expression is identified by white and opaque appearance of the eyes upon opening, instead of a normal transparent lens. (J:127709)
