Mutation detailsA T to C transition in codon 919, the equivalent codon to human 918, resulted in a protein which encoded threonine instead of methionine at this position. This mutation corresponds to mutations in human codon 918 commonly found in humans with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2). Silent mutations in codons 920 and 921 abolished a MunI endonuclease site. An adjacent loxP flanked neomycin cassette was removed by crossing mice carrying Rettm2Cos to mice expressing Cre under the control of a Beta-actin promoter. (J:60659)
