description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
 
Mutation detailsA neomycin cassette replaced most of exon 1 and all of exons 2-4. Northern blot analysis revealed that there was no mRNA produced from this allele in whole brain RNA samples derived from homozygous mice. Immunohistochemical studies detected no GFAP protein present in sections of hippocampus in homozygous mice. (J:64290)
