Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(ACTA1-STIM1)2Jmol
Name: transgene insertion 2, Jeffery Molkentin
MGI ID: MGI:5550399
Transgene: Tg(ACTA1-STIM1)2Jmol  Location: unknown  Genetic Position: ChrY, Syntenic
Strain of Origin:  FVB/N
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(ACTA1-STIM1)2Jmol expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe human STIM1 cDNA encoding the shorter spliced form was cloned into a human ACTA1 promoter (modified with a troponin 1 element to enhance expression in slow fibers) to create a skeletal muscle-specific transgenic strain. Expression is increased approximately 6-fold in the quadriceps, and at uniformly high levels in a broad range of skeletal muscle groups. No expression is observed in the heart. The transgene is integrated on the Y chromosome in this "low expressor" line. (J:101977)
