Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(DUX4*)1Maar
Name: transgene insertion 1, Silvere van der Maarel
MGI ID: MGI:5555034
Synonyms: D4Z4-2.5
Transgene: Tg(DUX4*)1Maar  Location: unknown  Genetic Position: Chr17, Syntenic
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6J x CBA/J)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThis transgene carries a 13.5 kb EcoRI fragment derived from a lambda-42 phage clone encompassing the partially deleted D4Z4 locus of a patient with facioscapulohumeral dystrophy. This allele contains the DUX4 pA signal, but lacks the more downstream exons 6 and 7 and contains 2.5 copies of the D4Z4 unit and flanking sequences. 4 copies of the fragment were integrated on chromosome 17. DUX4 mRNA was detected in germline tissues and variable expression is seen in analyzed somatic tissues including skeletal muscle and in the cerebellum. (J:195481)
