Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6 x CBA
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inducible, Inserted expressed sequence, Transactivator)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Hexb-tTA2S,tetO-Hexb)#Tjsa expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe proximal murine Hexb promoter (330 bp) drives expression of the tet-transactivator from the pTet-off advanced plasmid and tet responsive element (TRE-tight) drives expression of a full length mouse Hexb cDNA. Expression is seen only in the nervous tissue, skin and skeletal muscle. In the cerebral cortex expression of the tet-transactivator transcript is evenly distributed through the cortex. (J:190450)
