Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Ins2-rtTA)2Efr
Name: transgene insertion 2, Shimon Efrat
MGI ID: MGI:3770667
Synonyms: Ins-rtTA, RIP7-rtTA, RiprtTA
Transgene: Tg(Ins2-rtTA)2Efr  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x CBA)F2
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Transactivator)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA transgenic construct containing 9.5kb 5' regulatory sequence and first intron of the rat insulin 2 gene (RIP7) controlling the reverse tetracycline transactivator (rtTA), as well as the polyadenylation site sequence of the RIP7 gene was injected into fertilized (C57BL/6 X CBA)F2 mouse eggs. Founder line 2 with 10 copies of the transgene was established. When mice are crossed to transgenic mice carrying reporter genes, transgene expression is detected only in pancreatic islet beta cells.
