Akt1myr (RIPp)

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Mus musculus


  1. Resource Description
    Rat insulin II promoter drives expression in pancreatic beta cells of a form of Akt1 rendered constitutively active by the addition of an N-terminal myristoylation sequence (myr-Akt1). The transgene product is smaller than the endogenous Akt1 due to the mutant protein's deletion of its pleckstrin homology domain. In the pancreas, the transgene was expressed exclusively in the endocrine cells as assessed by immunohistochemistry using an antibody against the epitope tag.
