Tg(K18-ACE2)2Prlmn expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe ~6.8 kb transgene was designed with, from 5' to 3', 2.5 kb of genomic sequence, including the promoter, and the first intron (with a mutation in the 3' splice acceptor site to reduce exon skipping) from the human K18 gene, and a translational enhancer (TE) sequence from alfalfa mosaic virus. This was followed by the human angiotensin I converting enzyme (peptidyl-dipeptidase A) 2 (hACE2) coding sequence (lacking the last exon), and exons 6-7 and the poly(A) signal of the human K18 gene. The transgene integrated at a single site on chromosome 2 (99,209,508-99,220,724; mouse mm10). An ~11 kb duplication of the host genome (chr2:99,209,508-99,220,724) is present at both ends of the integrated transgene array. Currently, there are no genes annotated in this region. The transgene copy number of the hemizygous mouse is estimated to be 8 full copies (or 12-30 partial copies). Transgene expression is evident in airway epithelial cells (but not in alveolar epithelia), as well as in epithelia of other internal organs, including the liver, kidney, and gastrointestinal tract.
