Transgene Detail
Symbol: Tg(CAG-ACE2)GT5-027Cyt
Name: transgene insertion GT5-027, Ching-Yen Tsai
MGI ID: MGI:6711183
Synonyms: CAG-hACE2
Transgene: Tg(CAG-ACE2)GT5-027Cyt  Location: unknown  
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Epitope tag, Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutation:    Insertion
Tg(CAG-ACE2)GT5-027Cyt expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe transgenic construct contains 2 copies of a chicken HS4 insulator sequence, a CMV enhancer/chicken beta-actin (CAG) promoter, full length a hemaglutatin (HA) tagged human angiotensin I converting enzyme (peptidyl-dipeptidase A) 2 (hACE2) cDNA, and 2 more copies of the chicken HS4 insulator. Founder lines GT5-027 and GT4-008 were generated. GT5-027 carries two copies of the transgene and was used in experiments. High expression levels are detected in lung, kidney and brain. (J:305559)
