Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:41682
Parent Cell Line:  E14.1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsExon 6 was disrupted by the insertion of a neomycin selection cassette. The insertion introduced stop codons in all three reading frames. RT-PCR analysis showed an absence of normal message in homozygous mutant mice. (J:41682)
