description
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
 
Tg(C9orf72_i2)8Lutzy expresses 2 genes
 
Mutation detailsThe transgene 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. 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 contraction to 15 GGGGCC repeats was used. (J:228731)
