Name: vimentin; targeted mutation 2, Charles Babinet
MGI ID: MGI:1931879
Synonyms: Vim-, Vim2
Gene: Vim  Location: Chr2:13573927-13582826 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 10.04 cM, cytoband A2
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:21588
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)

Mutation detailsExon 1 of the Vim gene was disrupted by insertion of a neomycin resistance cassette. Northern analysis of homozygous mutant animals did not detect Vim transcript in lung and spleen, but did detect a minor aberrant transcript in heart. Western analysis and immunofluorescence microsopy did not detect VIM protein in tissues of homozygous mutant mice. (J:21588)
