These transgenic mice express the reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator (rtTA) protein under the control of the human surfactant, pulmonary-associated protein C (SFTPC) promoter, and expression of the target gene may be regulated by the tetracycline analog, doxycycline. This strain provides a Tet-On tool that allows the inducible expression of genes in the developing and adult lung and respiratory epithelium.

Mice that are hemizygous for this transgenic insert are viable, fertile, normal in size, and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. These transgenic mice express the reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator (rtTA) protein under the control of the human SFTPC, surfactant, pulmonary-associated protein C, promoter. In situ hybridization detects rtTA gene product (mRNA) in lung peripheral epithelial cells from adult mice and 15 postconception day aged embryos from doxycycline treated dams. Induction of transgene expression is detected as early as postconception day 12.5 when the pregnant female is treated with doxycycline. When mated to a second transgenic strain carrying a gene of interest under the regulatory control of a tetracycline-responsive promoter element (tetO), expression of the target gene may be regulated by the tetracycline analog, doxycycline (dox); in the presence of dox, transcription of the target gene is induced in cells where rtTA is expressed. This strain provides a Tet-On tool that allows the inducible expression of genes in the developing and adult lung and respiratory epithelium.

In an attempt to offer alleles on well-characterized or multiple genetic backgrounds, alleles are frequently moved to a genetic background different from that on which an allele was first characterized. This is the case for this strain. It should be noted that the phenotype could vary from that originally described. We will modify the strain description if necessary as published results become available.

A transgenic construct containing 3.7kb sequence of the human SFTPC, surfactant, pulmonary-associated protein C, gene promoter, the reverse tetracycline regulatable transactivator protein (rtTA) gene, and SV40 polyadenylation signal sequence was injected into mixed C57BL/6 and 129 background embryos. Founder mice were bred to FVB/N animals. Upon arrival at The Jackson Laboratory Repository, these mice were backcrossed to C57BL/6J mice for at least 5 generations.

A 32 SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) panel analysis, with 27 markers covering all 19 chromosomes and the X chromosome, was performed on the rederived living colony at The Jackson Laboratory Repository. This revealed three markers on chromosome 11 that are homozygous for allele-type other than C57BL/6. The three markers may be fixed to homozygosity in the colony, and are located at (approximately) 4.3 Mbp, 8.4 Mbp, and 20.9 Mbp. Possible sources may be C57BLKS, BALB/c, AKR, C3H/He, NOD, SWR or other.

Mutation Made ByDr. Jeffrey Whitsett,   Children's Hospital Medical Center
Site of ExpressionExpresses rtTA in developing and adult lung.
Expressed Gene rtTA, reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator, E. coli
The tetracycline repressor gene (Tetr), arose from chemically mutated Escherichia coli genome which was screened for tetracycline dependence (Gossen and Bujard, 1992). One mutant with a four amino acid residue change (rTetR) exhibited dependence on tetracycline for induction of the targeted gene and was used in the rtTA construct (Gossen et al, 1995). rTetr was fused at the C-terminus with the viral co-activator, virion protein 16 of the herpes simplex virus (VP-16).
Promoter SFTPC, surfactant protein C, human
Molecular Note The transgene is composed of 3.7 kb of human SFTPC promoter, a reverse tetracycline responsive transactivator gene (rt-TA), and a 0.45 kb SV40 polyadenylation signal. Transgene expression was confirmed by RT-PCR analysis. The human SFTPC promoter is active in respiratory epithelial cells. [MGI Ref ID J:61736]

Payment Terms and Conditions

Terms are granted by individual review and stated on the customer invoice(s) and account statement. These transactions are payable in U.S. currency within the granted terms. Payment for services, products, shipping containers, and shipping costs that are rendered are expected within the payment terms indicated on the invoice or stated by contract. Invoices and account balances in arrears of stated terms may result in The Jackson Laboratory pursuing collection activities including but not limited to outside agencies and court filings.

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.

Unless prohibited by law, in purchasing or receiving MICE, PRODUCTS or services from JACKSON, purchaser or recipient, or any party claiming by or through them, expressly releases and discharges JACKSON from all such causes of action or damages, and further agrees to defend and indemnify JACKSON from any costs or damages arising out of any third party claims.

Acceptance of delivery of MICE, PRODUCTS or services shall be deemed agreement to these terms and conditions. No purchase order or other document transmitted by purchaser or recipient that may modify the terms and conditions hereof, shall be in any way binding on JACKSON, and instead the terms and conditions set forth herein, including any special terms and conditions set forth separately, shall govern the sale of MICE, PRODUCTS or services by JACKSON.
