Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Grik2tm1Sfh
Name: glutamate receptor, ionotropic, kainate 2 (beta 2); targeted mutation 1, Stephen F Heinemann
MGI ID: MGI:1857979
Synonyms: GLUK6-, GluR6-
Gene: Grik2  Location: Chr10:49094833-49788766 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 24.87 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:46932
Parent Cell Line:  W9.5/W95 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S1/Sv-Oca2+ Tyr+ Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin resistance cassette replaced a 687 bp fragment of the gene, which contained the exon encoding MD2. In situ hybridization of parasagittal sections of brains from homozygous mutant mice probed with gene-specific probes showed no detectable mRNA for the targeted gene. Immunoblots of hippocampal membrane extracts from homozygous mutant mice using antibodies against the targeted protein showed no detectable protein. (J:46932)
