Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Aif1-tTA)54Kftnk
Name: transgene insertion 54, Kenji Tanaka
MGI ID: MGI:5439166
Synonyms: Iba1-tTA
Transgene: Tg(Aif1-tTA)54Kftnk  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Transactivator)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA modified 2 kb of the mouse promoter drives microglia-specific expression of a mammalianized tetracycline transactivator (tTA). The modification prevents fusion between the mouse sequence and the mammalianized tTA. Lines 54 and 75 were generated. (J:186771)
