Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:2079
Parent Cell Line:  E14TG2a (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA neomycin selection cassette was inserted into exon 10 at sequences corresponding to codon 489 of the encoded protein. The authors predict that a truncated protein with amino acid 488 changed from isoleucine to alanine and a stop codon at position 489 are produced from this allele. (J:2079)
