Description
Hemizygous mice are viable and fertile. These transgenic mice carry the gene encoding the tetracycline-controlled transactivator protein (tTA) driven by the liver-enriched activator protein (PLAP, C/EBP, Cebpb) promoter, and express tTA, specifically, in liver. When these transgenic mice are mated to a strain carrying the luciferase gene coupled to a tetracycline-responsive promoter element (TRE; tetO), the luciferase reporter is expressed in a liver-specific fashion; treatment with doxycycline (dox) prevented transcription of the luciferase reporter in the liver. C57BL/6J-Tg(tTALap)5Uh mice may be mated to transgenic strains containing a gene of interest coupled to a TRE to study the effects of liver specific expression of the target gene in a dox-inducible fashion. Dox concentration may be administered in the animals' water supply. It should be noted that the chromosomal integration site of a TRE-couple transgene may affect the tissue-specific expression of the target gene, such that target gene expression is not limited to liver.

Development
This strain originated on a mixed FVB/N,NMRI-outbred background and has been bred to a C57BL/6 background.

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

 
Allele Symbol Tg(Cebpb-tTA)5Bjd
Allele Name transgene insertion 5, Hermann Bujard
Allele Type Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Common Name(s) LAP-tTA; Tg(tTALap)5Uh; g(tTALap)5Bjd;
Mutation Made ByDr. Hermann Bujard,   Universit┐t Heidelberg
Strain of OriginNMRI
Site of ExpressionExpresses tTA at high levels in the liver; see Stock No. 003563
Expressed Gene tTA, tetracycline-controlled transactivator, E. coli
The tetracycline-resistance gene (TetR), arose from chemically mutated Escherichia coli genome which was screened for tetracycline dependence (Gossen and Bujard, 1992). TetR was fused at the C-terminus with the viral co-activator, virion protein 16 of the herpes simplex virus (VP-16). The tetracycline-inhibitable transcription factor is a component of a bigenic system that allows doxycycline (a tetracycline analog) regulatable expression of genes that are under the direction of the tetracycline responsive promoter (TetOp)promoter.
Promoter Cebpb, CCAAT/enhancer binding protein (C/EBP), beta, rat
General Note Transgenic mice on a C57BL/6J background are viable and fertile, and express tTA in the liver.
Molecular Note This transgene contains the gene encoding the tetracycline regulated transactivator protein (tTA) driven by the rat Cebpb promoter (previously called liver-enriched activator protein). [MGI Ref ID J:93000]

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
