Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Mbp-Pad2)28Fgm
Name: transgene insertion 28, Fabrizio G Mastronardi
MGI ID: MGI:4459094
Synonyms: PD2
Transgene: Tg(Mbp-Pad2)28Fgm  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  CD-1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Mbp-Pad2)28Fgm expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA 1.9 kb fragment of the mouse Mbp promoter (from the pMG2 plasmid) drives expression of a 2.3 kb cDNA fragment encoding rat Pad2. This line contains 15 copies of the transgene. Immunohistochemical analysis indicates increased expression in the white matter tracts of the corpus callosum. Immunoslot blot analysis of whole brain homogenates also indicates increased expression in mice at 2 to 6 months of age. Myelin samples from the central nervous system contain increased levels of MBP citrullination. (J:142650)
