Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsReplacement of four codons in exon 5, corresponding to an RCYK motif in the second transmembrane domain, with a neomycin cassette. Brain extracts from homologous mutant mice showed no detectable Psen2 on Western blots using antibodies directed against the hydrophilic loop and the amino terminus of the protein. (J:58465)
