Synonyms: alpha6-, Itga6tmZP149
Gene: Itga6  Location: Chr2:71617236-71688771 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 42.79 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:33712
Parent Cell Line:  H1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin cassette replaced a genomic fragment that contains three coding exons of the gene corresponding to amino acids 62-194. Northern analysis of total RNA extracted from homozygous tissue showed the absence of full length message, and a presence of a truncated mRNA that should not yield a functional protein. Immunohistochemical analysis did not detect any protein produced from this allele in tissue sections derived from from homozygous embryos. (J:33712)
