Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Il15ratm1Ama
Name: interleukin 15 receptor, alpha chain; targeted mutation 1, Averil Ma
MGI ID: MGI:1934016
Synonyms: Il-15R-, Il15ra-, IL-15Ralpha-, IL-15Ralpha-, RalphaKO
Gene: Il15ra  Location: Chr2:11705172-11733985 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 8.97 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:51337
Parent Cell Line:  RW-4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA genomic fragment containing exons 2 and 3 was replaced by a neomycin resistance cassette. These sequences encode the ligand binding and proline/threonine rich extracellular domains. Northern blot analysis demonstrated that the transcript was not detectable in liver RNA from homozygous mice. (J:51337)
