Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(ACTB-THRB*)DSyc
Name: transgene insertion D, Sheue-yann Cheng
MGI ID: MGI:5529515
Transgene: Tg(ACTB-THRB*)DSyc  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Dominant negative, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(ACTB-THRB*)DSyc expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThis transgene consists of the human beta-actin promoter driving the expression of a human thyroid hormone beta1 receptor cDNA isolated from the PV kindred with Generalized Resistance to Thyroid Hormone containing a C-insertion at nucleotide 1627 (codon 443). This insertion results in a frame shift of the carboxy terminal 16 amino acids resulting in a total loss of T3-binding and transcriptional activation behaving as a dominant negative. Three founder lines were established: A,D, and G. Line D is a high expressor line. RT-PCR and immunohistochemistry confirmed expression of RNA and protein. (J:134187)
