Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:30152
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsInsertion of a PGK-neomycin resistance cassette into an exon of the C3 gene deleted sequences that code for the C-terminal region of the beta chain and the N-terminal region of the alpha chain, including the site for processing the pro-C3 molecule. ELISA testing did not detect C3 protein in serum of homozygous mutant mice. A C3 hemolytic assay did not detect functional C3 activity. (J:30152)
