Mutation
description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
 
Mutation detailsInsertion of a neomycin resistance cassette into exon 6 disrupted the Alox5 gene. RT-PCR studies did not detect transcript in resident peritoneal macrophages of homozygous mutant mice. Western blot analysis of resident peritoneal macrophages of homozygous mutant mice did not detect ALOX5. (J:21372)
