Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Ucp1tm1Kz
Name: uncoupling protein 1 (mitochondrial, proton carrier); targeted mutation 1, Leslie Kozak
MGI ID: MGI:1857471
Synonyms: Ucp1-, Ucptm1
Gene: Ucp1  Location: Chr8:84016981-84025081 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr8, 39.65 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:40053
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsAll of exon 2 and a portion of exon 3 were replaced by a neomycin selection cassette. The deleted region encoded an essential transmembrane domain. Transcript was undetected in homozygous mutant mice via Northern blot analysis. Western blot analysis confirmed the absence of encoded protein. (J:40053)
