Name: transgene insertion E, David M Holtzman
MGI ID: MGI:3800823
Synonyms: PrP-mAbca1 line E
Transgene: Tg(Prnp-Abca1)EHol  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x CBA)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Prnp-Abca1)EHol expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA transgenic construct containing the mouse Abca1 (ATP-binding cassette, sub-family A (ABC1), member 1) gene under the control of the mouse Prnp (prion protein) promoter was injected into fertilized B6CBAF1 eggs. Founder line E was subsequently established. These founder line E mice have a 6-fold increase in expression of ABCA1 in the cortex over wildtype levels. Transgene expression is high in total brain tissue, kidney, testis and muscle as detected by Western blot analysis. (J:131400)
