Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(MC1R)1Jkn
Name: transgene insertion 1, Ian J Jackson
MGI ID: MGI:3805878
Synonyms: Tg-MC1R
Transgene: Tg(MC1R)1Jkn  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgene strain was created by microinjection of the human BAC RPCI11-655K11 into embryos homozygous for Mc1re. The BAC contains 146 kb of sequence with the complete human gene MC1R and includes at least 4 other genes. Quantitative RT-PCR on skin samples indicated that expression of the human MC1R was 9- to 20-fold lower than the endogenous mouse gene. (J:129904)
