Mutation
description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
 
Mutation detailsIn-frame insertion of a lac Z-neomycin resistance cassette into the second coding exon of the gene, just upstream of the DNA binding domain, eliminated both DNA-binding and ligand-binding functions of the receptor. Whole-mount beta-galactosidase assays revealed conspicuous beta-gal activivity in the interscapular brown fat pad of only E14.5 embryos carrying a targeted allele, but not in wild-type embryos (J:58223)

Notes
Complementation of Ppargtm1Rev mutant embryos with wild-type placenta by tetraploid aggregation corrects the cardiac defect and extends viability to E12.5 (two mutants out of a total five), E15.5 (one out of ten) and at birth (one of six). Rescued embryos survive to term but exhibit a second lethal phase during the first week of life. Additional phenotypes include: a 30% reduction in body weight (P0-P4) and subsequent ill health (as shown by dehydration, weight loss and lethargy starting at P5) associated with lipodystrophy, a severly pale, distended and fatty liver, severe intestinal bleeding, and numerous focal hematomas throughout the brain (J:58223).
