Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Raratm2Ipc
Name: retinoic acid receptor, alpha; targeted mutation 2, Pierre Chambon
MGI ID: MGI:1857867
Synonyms: Raralpha1, RaRalpha1-
Gene: Rara  Location: Chr11:98927818-98974942 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 62.76 cM, cytoband D-E1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:13574
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsInsertion of a neomycin cassette into exon 3. This disruption selectively prevents the synthesis of the alpha 1 isoform. RNAase protection analysis indicated that the mRNA encoding the alpha 1 isoform was mutated in this allele, and the alpha 2 isoform was transcribed normally. (J:13574)
