Tg(Eno2-Scn2a1*)Q54Mm expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA 4 kb promoter fragment from the rat NSE gene that includes 2.8 kb of 5'-flanking sequence, exon 1, intron 1 and 6 bp of exon 215 was used to drive expression of a mutant form of Scn2a1 containing a replacement of residues 879 to 881 (glycine-alanine-leucine) of the wild-type channel with three glutamine residues in the encoded mutant protein. These mutations are in the S4/S5 cytoplasmic linker of domain 2. In addition, a FLAG epitope is located immediately downstream of the initiator methionine. RT-PCR of RNA from dissected brain regions demonstrated that the transgene is widely expressed. No expression in other tissues was detected except for a low level in heart and spleen. (J:108884)
