These transgenic mice express Cre recombinase under the control of the mouse transgelin (smooth muscle protein 22-alpha) promoter. Cre recombinase activity is observed in vascular smooth muscle cells of hepatic and pulmonary arteries. When crossed with a strain containing a loxP site-flanked sequence of interest, Cre-mediated recombination results in deletion of the flanked sequence in vascular smooth muscle cells. This strain represents an effective tool for generating tissue specific-targeted mutants that would be useful in studies of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis.

Donating InvestigatorDr. Joachim Herz,   Univ of Texas Southwest Med Ctr Dallas

Mice homozygous for the transgenic insert are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. These transgenic mice express Cre recombinase under the control of the mouse transgelin (smooth muscle protein 22-alpha) promoter. Cre recombinase expression (mRNA) closely patterns endogenous transgelin expression, with the highest levels detected in the aorta, intestine and uterus. Low levels of transcript are detected in all other organs tested, likely reflecting the vascular smooth muscle compartments in the these tissues. Cre recombinase activity is observed in vascular smooth muscle cells of hepatic and pulmonary arteries, with no activity detected outside the vascular walls. When crossed with a strain containing a loxP site-flanked sequence of interest, Cre-mediated recombination results in deletion of the flanked sequence in vascular smooth muscle cells. This strain represents an effective tool for generating tissue specific-targeted mutants that would be useful in studies of vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis.

A transgenic construct containing cre coding sequence under the control of the mouse transgelin promoter was introduced into B6SJLF2 donor oocytes.

Genes & Alleles

Gene & Allele Information provided by MGI

Allele Symbol Tg(Tagln-cre)1Her
Allele Name transgene insertion 1, Joachim Herz
Allele Type Transgenic (cre- or Flp-expressing)
Common Name(s) SM; SM22-Cre; SM22-Cretg; SM22a-Cre; Sm22alphaCre; Tag1-Cre; Tgln-Cre;
Mutation Made ByDr. Joachim Herz,   Univ of Texas Southwest Med Ctr Dallas
Strain of Origin(C57BL/6 x SJL)F2
Site of Expressionvascular smooth muscle cells
Expressed Gene cre, cre recombinase, bacteriophage P1
Cre recombinase is an enzyme derived from the bacteriophage P1 that specifically recognizes loxP sites. Cre has been shown to effectively mediate the excision of DNA located between loxP sites. After the excision event, the DNA ends recombine leaving a single loxP site in place of the intervening sequence.
Promoter Tagln, transgelin, mouse, laboratory
Driver Note Tagln
General Note Hemizygous transgenic mice are viable, fertile, normal in size, and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities.
Molecular Note The transgene consists of a Tagln (transgelin) promoter and a cre gene modified to include translational consensus and nuclear localization signals. The Tagln promoter was used to drive transgene expression in smooth muscle cells. Cre recombinase mRNA expression closely patterns endogenous transgelin expression, with the highest levels detected in the aorta, intestine, and uterus. Low levels of Cre recombinase transcript are detected in all other organs. Recombination occurs in vascular smooth muscle cells of hepatic and pulmonary arteries. No recombination has been detected in non-muscle cells. [MGI Ref ID J:76460]

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.
