Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Gpx1tm1Ysh
Name: glutathione peroxidase 1; targeted mutation 1, Ye-Shih Ho
MGI ID: MGI:2158814
Synonyms: Gpx1-, GpX-1 KO, GPX1 KO, GSHPx-1-deficient
Gene: Gpx1  Location: Chr9:108216279-108217541 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr9, 59.24 cM, cytoband F1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:41169
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsInsertion of a neomycin resistance cassette disrupted exon 2 of the gene. Northern blots of total RNA isolated from brain, heart, kidney, liver, and lung of homozygous mutant mice showed no detectable transcript of the targeted gene when probed with an a gene-specific cDNA probe.
