Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:16490
Parent Cell Line:  AB1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprt+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe insertion of a neomycin cassette into exon 3 disrupted the open reading frame at codon 107. Western blot analysis revealed an absence of encoded protein in liver extracts from homozygous mutant mice. Spectrographic analysis showing a lack of urate oxidase activity in liver extracts, confirmed functional ablation in homozygous mutant mice. (J:16490)
