Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Camk2a-DISC1)37Asaw
Name: transgene insertion 37, Akira Sawa
MGI ID: MGI:5486141
Synonyms: DN-DISC1
Transgene: Tg(Camk2a-DISC1)37Asaw  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Dominant negative, Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Camk2a-DISC1)37Asaw expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe Camk2a promoter drives the expression of a truncated human DISC1 open reading frame that produces amino acids 1 through 597. This truncated protein is thought to function as a dominant negative. The transgene is expressed preferentially in neonatal stages, especially in pyramidal neurons of the dentate gyrus, and does not interfere with endogenous gene expression from Disc1. This is the high expressing line. (J:124683)
