Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Pax8tm1Pgr
Name: paired box 8; targeted mutation 1, Peter Gruss
MGI ID: MGI:2156985
Synonyms: Pax8-
Gene: Pax8  Location: Chr2:24420560-24475599 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 16.43 cM, cytoband B
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:47310
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe vector containing a neo cassette was targeted to exon 2. A thymidine kinase gene was inserted at the 3' end of the construct. This leads to complete inactivation as the putative splicing from exon 1 to exon 3 renders the codons out of frame, terminating after 11 heterologous amino acids. (J:47310)
