This assay will NOT distinguish hemizygous from homozygous transgenic animals.
Genotyping by PCR is performed to determine the absence or presence of the transgene. This strain has some variability in repeat size, therefore Southern blotting is performed to accurately determine the size, in kilobases, of the repeat within the transgene.
Transgene = 348 bp
Internal positive control = 168 bp
