eGFP expression in the peripheral blood of F0 Tg mice

TransgeneNo. of mice with CD4+ eGFP+ cells/no. of mice with Tg (PCR+)
Tg43G177/8
Tg43G17Δ7.10/14
Tg1b.eGFP1a/14
Tg7.1-1b.eGFP6/6
  • a eGFP expression was detected in CD4+ cells and granulocytes (Gr1+Mac1+) in only one founder Tg1b.eGFP mouse. We concluded that it was ectopic expression since the remaining founder Tg1b.eGFP mice never expressed eGFP in CD4+ cells.
