Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Apoe-Fgf21)1Sakl
Name: transgene insertion 1, Steven A Kliewer
MGI ID: MGI:4354167
Synonyms: Tg(Fgf21)
Transgene: Tg(Apoe-Fgf21)1Sakl  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NCrl
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Apoe-Fgf21)1Sakl expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe mouse promoter was used to drive liver-specific expression of the mouse cDNA. Two lines were created (1 and 2) that result in 50-fold, and 150-fold, respectively, higher expression of the transcript compared to in wild-type mice. The two lines exhibit virtually identical changes in fasting serum beta-hydroxybutyrate, triglyceride, total cholesterol, glucose, and insulin concentrations. Line 1 was selected as the representative line. (J:129855)
