Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(tetO-TAg)1Efr
Name: transgene insertion 1, Shimon Efrat
MGI ID: MGI:3770670
Synonyms: tet-TAg
Transgene: Tg(tetO-TAg)1Efr  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C3HeB/FeJ
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Inserted expressed sequence)
Inducer:    doxycycline/tetracycline
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsTo generate the transgene, a fragment containing a tandem array of 7 copies of the tetracycline operator sequence and a cytomegalovirus minimal promoter was placed in front of the SV40 large T antigen gene. The promoter does not allow expression of the TAg gene, and transgenic mice do not develop tumors, unless crossed with mice expressing a tetracycline transactivator gene (tTA or rtTA). (J:56326)
