Name: transgene insertion 1, Huda Y Zoghbi
MGI ID: MGI:5588452
Synonyms: MECP2R306C-EGFPTg, R306G Tg
Transgene: Tg(MECP2*R306C/EGFP)1Hzo  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  FVB/N

Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(MECP2*R306C/EGFP)1Hzo expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsA human PAC (PAC671D9) containing only the MECP2 locus and regulatory elements was modified to introduce a R306C (CGC to TCG) missense mutation in the transcriptional repression domain (TRD) of exon 4 and a C-terminal GFP tag. Expression of the transgene parallels that of endogenous MECP2 in the brain. (J:214143)
