Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Mecp2tm1Jae
Name: methyl CpG binding protein 2; targeted mutation 1, Rudolf Jaenisch
MGI ID: MGI:2158353
Synonyms: Mecp2lox
Gene: Mecp2  Location: ChrX:74026592-74085690 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 37.63 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:67909
Parent Cell Line:  v6.5 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x 129S4/SvJae)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsLoxP sites were inserted flanking exon 3 as follows: A single loxP site was inserted 5' to exon 3 and a loxP-flanked hygromycin and thymidine kinase selection cassette was inserted 3' to exon 3. The selection cassette was removed in ES cells by Cre-mediated recombination prior to the production of chimeric mice, leaving a single loxP site in place of the selection cassette. (J:67909)
