Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:36821
Parent Cell Line:  W9.5/W95 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S1/Sv-Oca2+ Tyr+ Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA genomic fragment containing sequences encoding a conserved motif was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette. RT-PCR analysis on samples derived from brain and liver of homozygous mice demonstrated that no detectable transcript is produced from this allele. Western blot analysis on samples derived from thymocytes of homozygous mice confirmed that no detectable protein was produced. (J:36821)
