Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Gabra6tm1Geh
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit alpha 6; targeted mutation 1, Gregg E Homanics
MGI ID: MGI:1857173
Gene: Gabra6  Location: Chr11:42197264-42211899 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 25.03 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:40242
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA neomycin selection cassette was inserted into exon 8. Northern blot analysis on RNA derived from cerebellum of homozygous mice demonstrated that aberrant transcripts were expressed from this allele. Hoever, none of these are predicted to be able to code for a functional protein (J:40242). Later studies showed that this mutation also affected the expression of the Gabra1 and Gabrb2 genes (J:63792). (J:40242, J:63792)
