Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Ins1-luc)VUPwrs
Name: transgene insertion VU, Alvin Powers
MGI ID: MGI:4357680
Synonyms: MIP-Luc-VU
Transgene: Tg(Ins1-luc)VUPwrs  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB/NJ
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe MIP-luc transgenic construct was designed with the 9.2 kb mouse insulin I promoter (MIP or Ins1) and a luciferase (luc) optical reporter cDNA gene (with a rabbit beta-globin intronic and polyA sequences and 3' non-transgenic region flanking the luc fragment on each side to stabilize the transgene). This transgene was injected into FVB/N embryos. Mice from founder line "VU" (specifically 43-8 (line 5)) exhibited the highest and most consistent luciferase expression over the pancreatic region and were found to have approximately three copies.
