Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Oxttm1Wsy
Name: oxytocin; targeted mutation 1, W Scott Young III
MGI ID: MGI:1857234
Synonyms: OT-, OTKO -
Gene: Oxt  Location: Chr2:130576173-130577054 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 63.24 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:36926
Parent Cell Line:  CCE/EK.CCE (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S/SvEv-Gpi1c
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted using neomycin resistance cassette. The vector replaced sequences encoding the last two exons. Hybridization histochemistry and immunocytochemistry were used to demonstrate the lack of transcript and protein in homozygous mutant animals. (J:36926)
