Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Alpltm1Sor
Name: alkaline phosphatase, liver/bone/kidney; targeted mutation 1, Philippe Soriano
MGI ID: MGI:1857124
Synonyms: Tnap-, TN-APBetageo, TNAP-bgeo
Gene: Alpl  Location: Chr4:137741733-137796384 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr4, 70.02 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:25249
Parent Cell Line:  AB1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprt+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin cassette replaced 1.6 kb of the gene, from a portion of exon 2 to a portion of exon 6. The construct deleted the active site of the protein, Ser 93, located in exon 5. RT-PCR of total RNA from E13 gonads of homozygous mutant mice did not detect transcript. In addition, lack of protein in homozygous mutant mice was demonstrated functionally. (J:25249)

Only the embryonic (EAP) and tissue non-specific (TNAP) forms of alkaline phosphatase are expressed in mouse embryos. EAP is the predominant form of the enzyme in the early embryo, but predominance switches to TNAP about the 7th embryonic day. Akp2tm1Sor was used to clarify the expression of TNAP in mouse primordial germ cells. These cells do not express TNAP before gastrulation, but the enzyme is elaborated by extraembryonic tissue prior to that stage. Primordial germ cells do not require TNAP for either development or migration (J:25249).
