Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Apobtm4Sgy
Name: apolipoprotein B; targeted mutation 4, Stephen G Young
MGI ID: MGI:2157775
Synonyms: Apob83
Gene: Apob  Location: Chr12:7977648-8016835 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr12, 3.53 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:46549
Parent Cell Line:  RF8 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsAn insertion-type vector was used to create mutations in exon 26 at both codon 2153 to alter this residue from an glutamine to one encoding leucine (Q2153L) and at codon 3798 to alter this residue from a leucine to a stop codon (L3798X). Western blot analysis on plasma derived from hemizygous mice demonstrated that a mutant, truncated protein is expressed from this allele, and the expression of the ApoB48 and ApoB100 isoforms was abolished.
