Symbol: Aqp5tm1Ask
Name: aquaporin 5; targeted mutation 1, Alan S Verkman
MGI ID: MGI:2150059
Synonyms: AQP5-
Gene: Aqp5  Location: Chr15:99591028-99594829 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr15, 56.13 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:56302
Parent Cell Line:  CB1-4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J x (Rb(11.16)2H x Rb(16.17)32Lub)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA 1.8kb neomycin resistance cassette replaced parts of exon 2 and 4, all of exon 3, and all of introns 2 and 3. Northern blots of submandibular gland homogenates from homozygous mutant mice showed no detectable full-length Aqp5 transcripts. Immunocytochemistry of the salivary glands from homozygous mutant mice showed no detectable Aqp5 protein. (J:56302)
