Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(C9orf72_i3)112Lutzy
Name: transgene insertion 112, Cathy Lutz
MGI ID: MGI:5618284
Transgene: Tg(C9orf72_i3)112Lutzy  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct was designed using a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clone derived from fibroblasts of a patient with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), carrying the human chromosome 9 open reading frame 72 gene (C9orf72) with a hexanucleotide repeat expansion (GGGGCC) in the intron between the alternatively-spliced non-coding first exons 1a and 1b (variant 3). The BAC isolated a ~166 kbp sequence (~36 kbp human C9orf72 genomic sequence, with ~110 kbp upstream and ~20 kbp downstream sequences). Upon amplification of different BAC subclones in bacteria, the repeat expansion underwent contraction in some clones. A BAC subclone with a limited contraction to 100-1000 GGGGCC repeats was used.
