Transgenic Allele Detail
Symbol: VcanTg(Hoxa1)1Chm
Name: versican; transgene insertion 1, Corey H Mjaatvedt
MGI ID: MGI:1857689
Synonyms: Cspg2hdf, hdf, hdf, heart defect, Vcanhdf
Gene: Vcan  Location: Chr13:89655312-89742509 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr13, 45.5 cM
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J or CBA
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe transgene consisted of 3.5kb of the Hoxa1 regulatory region gene with a lacZ reporter sequence. The transgene inserted into intron 7 and separates exons 7 and 8, which code for the two chondroitin sulfate binding domains. RT-PCR analysis detected truncated mRNA transcripts in homozygous embryos. None of the alternative splice forms of the gene are detected in hearts from homozygous mice. (J:50233)
Inheritance:    Recessive
