Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:2511
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)

Mutation detailsA PGK-neomycin resistance cassette replaced part of intron 3 and introduced three nucleotide changes into exon 3, creating two termination codons and a new PstI site. The authors predict translation of a truncated protein by the mutant allele. Immunoblot analysis of E12.5 brain did not detect full length RB1 protein in homozygous mice. (J:2511)

This is one of several targeted null mutations of Rb1 that have been created. Results appear to be similar for all the mutations (J:2498, J:2511, J:2516). Heterozygotes for the mutations show no predisposition to retinoblastoma. Homozygotes die in utero with neuronal and hematopoietic system abnormalities. Transfer of a human RB1 mini-transgene into the mutant mice corrects the defects (J:2516). On the other hand, transfer of the human gene into mice with a normal Rb1 genotype, causing overexpression of the gene product, produces mice dwarfed in proportion to the number of extra RB1 copies they carry (J:15042). Homozygous Rb1tm1Tyj mutant mice given a transgene producing low levels of Rb1 product survive to birth, but die at that stage due to failure of myogenesis. Myoblasts undergo massive apoptosis, and surviving cells do not undergo terminal differentiation (J:37145).
