Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Bmp8atm1Blh
Name: bone morphogenetic protein 8a; targeted mutation 1, Brigid L Hogan
MGI ID: MGI:1857953
Synonyms: Bmp8a-, Bmp8atm1
Gene: Bmp8a  Location: Chr4:123312645-123343252 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr4, 57.42 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:46927
Parent Cell Line:  TL1/TL-1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S6/SvEvTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsAn 8 kb genomic fragment containing exons 4-6 was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette. In situ hybridization experiments on spermatids in testes of homozygous male mice demonstrated that an aberrant transcript is produced from this allele, but no functional protein is predicted to be produced from this allele since the majority of the coding sequences were deleted.
