Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(Prnp-CRYAB)Z104Dbo
Name: transgene insertion Z104, David R Borchelt
MGI ID: MGI:5697709
Synonyms: Z104
Transgene: Tg(Prnp-CRYAB)Z104Dbo  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  (C3H/HeJ x C57BL/6J)F2
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(Prnp-CRYAB)Z104Dbo expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct contains cDNA of human alpha B crystallin under the control of the mouse Prnp, prion protein, gene promoter. The 6 kb promoter consists of the first exon, the first intron, and the fused 2nd and 3rd exons. Expression of the transgene is observed in the forebrain, cerebellum, spinal cord and kidney. No evidence of expression was found in lung, spleen, testes or liver. (J:226527)
