Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:28778
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin cassette replaced 3 exons that encode the NADPH ribose and adenine binding sites of the protein (amino acids 1010 - 1144). Western blots of protein extracts of brain, heart, lung, and aorta/vena cava from homozygous mutant mice showed no detectable encoded protein. (J:28778)
Inheritance:    Dominant
