Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin resistance cassette introduced by homologous recombination replaced the 3' part of exon 1,including the translation start codon and a 2.5 kb fragment of the first intron of Plp ("PLP/DM20 gene"). Western blot analysis showed absence of both PLP and DM20 proteolipids proteins in hemizygous mutant mice. (J:38856)
