description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
 
Mutation detailsInsertion of a PGK-neomycin resistance cassette deleted 119 bp of exon III downstream of the initiation codon, intron 3, and 68 bp of exon IV, and inserted a stop codon immediately downstream of the aa 13 codon. The deleted sequences encode amino acids 14-73. Western and Northern blot analyses did not detect expression in any tissues from homozygous mutant mice. (J:66262)
