Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Thy1-PTGS2)303Kand
Name: transgene insertion 303, Katrin Andreasson
MGI ID: MGI:4418980
Synonyms: hCOX-2 tg, Thy-1-COX-2 tg line 303
Transgene: Tg(Thy1-PTGS2)303Kand  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Thy1-PTGS2)303Kand expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene construct contains the entire 1.8 kb human COX-2 (PTGS2; prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2 or PGE2) open reading frame sequence inserted into the 8.2 kb Thy-1 expression cassette. This construct was injected into the male pronuclei of C57BL/6J cells. No founder lines were provided in the original reference but lines 300, 303, and 316 were characterized in subsequent publications. Mice from founder line 303 were found to have an approximately 25-40-fold increase in PGE2 expression. (J:72034)
