Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Alox5tm1Fun
Name: arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase; targeted mutation 1, Colin D Funk
MGI ID: MGI:1857125
Synonyms: 5-LO-, 5LO-, 5-LO KO, 5-LOX-, 5-LOX K/O, 5LX-
Gene: Alox5  Location: Chr6:116410077-116461178 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 53.79 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:21372
Parent Cell Line:  D3H (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
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)
