Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Mecp2tm1Bird
Name: methyl CpG binding protein 2; targeted mutation 1, Adrian Bird
MGI ID: MGI:2137555
Synonyms: Mecp2lox
Gene: Mecp2  Location: ChrX:73070198-73129296 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 37.63 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:67910
Parent Cell Line:  E14TG2a (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsInsertion of a neomycin resistance cassette into the gene introduced loxP sites that flank exons 3 and 4, and added an intron and polyadenylation signal from the human beta globin gene. From the mutated allele, Northern blot analysis detected the wild type mature transcript and also a transcript in which the beta globin intron was unspliced. (J:67910)
