Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(CMV-HTT*48Q)BTag
Name: transgene insertion B, Danilo A Tagle
MGI ID: MGI:5569528
Synonyms: HD48B
Transgene: Tg(CMV-HTT*48Q)BTag  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB/N
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(CMV-HTT*48Q)BTag expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe full-length human huntingtin cDNA containing 48 CAG repeats is under the control of the cytomegalovirus promoter and SV40 enhancer. Three lines, B-D, were established. No CAG repeat instability was detected by PCR amplification. Western blot analysis confirmed transgene expression in the brain, including primary and secondary motor cortices, entorhinal cortex, striatum, hippocampus and cerebellum. Transgene expression in the brain is five times that of endogenous levels. (J:50173)
