Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Waptm2(rtTA)Kuw
Name: whey acidic protein; targeted mutation 2, Kay Uwe Wagner
MGI ID: MGI:3799057
Gene: Wap  Location: Chr11:6635482-6638637 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 4.61 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:148684
Parent Cell Line:  RW-4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Targeted (Transactivator)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe coding sequence for rtTA was inserted into the 5'-UTR along with a floxed neomycin selection cassette. The neo selection cassette was eliminated in founder line 7A3 by crossing properly targeted mice to Tg(MMTV-cre)1Mam transgenic animals. When mice were given doxycycline, transgene expression was restricted to mammary epithelial cells as determined by crosses with two different rtTA reporter strains. (J:148684)
