MGI ID: MGI:2149329
Synonyms: Cebpb-, C/EBPb-, C/EBPbeta-
Gene: Cebpb  Location: Chr2:167688915-167690418 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 87.58 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:25215
Parent Cell Line:  CCE/EK.CCE (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S/SvEv-Gpi1c
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsAn MC1-neocassette replaced the carboxy-terminal part of the gene, which encodes the leucine zipper and part of the basic domain. Generation of a null allele was confirmed by Western blots of hepatic tissue nuclear extracts. (J:25215)
