Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:20017
Parent Cell Line:  E14.1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA PGK-neomycin cassette replaced part of exon 3 and all of exon 4. The targeting event is predicted to prevent the formation of a major part of the protein, including cysteine residues involved in all inter- and intramolecular sulfide bridges. (J:20017)
Inheritance:    Recessive
