Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Th-Peo1*,-EGFP)2Gcor
Name: transgene insertion 2, Gino A Cortopassi
MGI ID: MGI:5447072
Transgene: Tg(Th-Peo1*,-EGFP)2Gcor  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Th-Peo1*,-EGFP)2Gcor expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgene contains 9.0 kb of upstream sequence from the rat tyrosine hydroxylase gene that drives dopamine neuron-specific expression of the mouse gene with a silent point mutation at position 1077 (c.1077C->G). This mutation forms a restriction enzyme site and allows for the insertion of 39 nucleotides that produces a duplication of amino acids 353 to 365. An IRES-EGFP and polyadenylation sequence follow the altered mouse gene. Four of six lines have higher EGFP expression than wild-type mice. Lines 1, 2, 3 and 4 contain 181, 227, 141, 97, 42 and 6 copies of the transgene, respectively. (J:188914)
