Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:57730
Parent Cell Line:  RW-4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin resistance cassette replaced a genomic fragment containing part of exon 17, intron 17 and part of exon 18, which include sequences encoding the residues essential for the formation of the trinuclear copper cluster of the encoded protein. Western blot analysis on serum derived from homozygous mice demonstrated that no detectable encoded protein was present, and activity assays on serum of homozygous mice confirmed that no functional protein is made from this allele.
