Expression of human DYSF (dysferlin) cDNA is driven by the mouse Ckm (creatine kinase, muscle; MCK) promoter in this transgenic strain. Hemizygotes are viable, fertile, normal in size and do not display any gross physical or behavioral abnormalities. Expression of dysferlin in skeletal muscle is approximately 4-8 fold that of the endogenous protein level. There is no detectable muscle pathology up to one year of age.

The human DYSF (dysferlin) cDNA with SV40 polyA was inserted downstream of the mouse Ckm (creatine kinase, muscle; MCK) promoter. The transgenic vector was introduced to B6SJLF1 hybrid embryos to create the mutation. This strain was backcrossed to C57BL/6 for six generations by the donating laboratory.

No phenotype has been published.
