Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Snrpntm2Cbr
Name: small nuclear ribonucleoprotein N; targeted mutation 2, Camilynn I Brannan
MGI ID: MGI:2155245
Synonyms: deltaPWS-IC, IC deletion, PWS-ICdel, PWS-ICdel35kb, PWS-IC deletion
Gene: Snrpn  Location: Chr7:59982495-60005111 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 34.04 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:47318
Parent Cell Line:  Other (see notes) (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S/Sv
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA PGK-neomycin resistance cassette replaced 35kb of sequence encompassing 16kb upstream of the gene and exons 1-6. The portion of the targeted locus including the neo gene and 5' sequences was amplified four fold in the targeted allele. Northern blot analysis of brain tissue using a cDNA probe for the gene did not detect any transcript in heterozygous mutant mice. (J:47318, J:61887, J:69578)

ES cell line = CJ7 or J4. In J:47318 CJ7 male ES cells were used. All offspring generated from crosses of these chimeras to C57BL/6 females died by postnatal day 7. In J:61887 the same targeting vector was used in CJ7 (male) and J4 (female, XO) ES cells. It is unclear which of these targeting events was used to generate the line of mice used in subsequent papers as both parental inheritence of the allele and strain background influence the survival of offspring.
