Mutation detailsReplacement of exons 3, 4 and 5 with a neomycin resistance gene inserted in frame into exon 3. By Northern blot analysis, mRNA could not be detected in macrophages derived from homozygous mutant mice. By ELISA assay, protein cound not be detected in serum of homozygous mutant mice after intravenous injection of lipopolysaccharide. (J:46514)
