Mutation detailsA PGK-neomycin resistance cassette replaced sequences in exon 6 that code for the fourth transmembrane segment of the protein. Cerebellar transcript was not detected in homozygous mutant animals. Immunoblot analysis of cerebellar membranes did not detect protein in homozygous mutant mice. (J:46746)
