A BAC transgenic reporter recapitulates in vivo regulation of human telomerase reverse transcriptase in development and tumorigenesis.


Telomerase is tightly regulated in humans relative to mice, owing to the differential regulation of TERT genes. To explore hTERT regulation in vivo, we engineered mice with a 160-kb transgenic bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) spanning the hTERT locus with a Renilla luciferase (Rluc) cassette downstream of its promoter. Analysis of multiple founder… (More)
