Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(BEST1-rtTA,tetO-cre)1Yzl
Name: transgene insertion 1, Yun-Zheng Le
MGI ID: MGI:4398912
Synonyms: PVMD2-rtTA::tetO-PhCMVcre, VMD2-cre
Transgene: Tg(BEST1-rtTA,tetO-cre)1Yzl  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB/N
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Recombinase, Transactivator)
Inducer:    doxycycline
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsTwo transgenic fragments were co-injected to generate the mouse line. One fragment contains a 3 kb human BEST1 promoter fragment driving expression of the tetracycline-inducible transactivator rtTA and the SV40 polyA sequence. The second fragment consists of the tetracycline-responsive regulatory element (tetO) and human cytomegalovirus immediate early enhancer (hCMV) controlling expression of a translationally optimized cre sequence followed by the mouse metallothionein (Mt1) polyadenylation signal. After co-injection into zygotes, 10 founders were obtained with co-integration of both fragments into a single chromosome being observed in all founders. One line demonstrating substantial activity in Muller glial cells was characterized further. (J:154799)
