description
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
 
Tg(tetO-Mcpt1)1Mrab expresses 1 gene
 
Mutation detailsThe transgene was designed with the tetracycline-responsive element (TRE; also called tet-operator or tetO) upstream of a rat vascular chymase (RVCH or Mcpt1) gene modified such that a human influenza hemagglutinin (HA) tag is added to the C terminus of mature RVCH protein. With addition of dox expression of the RVCH-HA fusion protein can be completely abolished, reversing the hypertension phenotype. (J:70031)
