Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:71969
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA single loxP site was inserted 5' to the only coding exon, and a loxP-flanked hygromycin resistance cassette was inserted 3' to the exon. The hygromycin selection cassette was removed in ES cells by transient Cre expression leaving a single loxP site prior to the production of chimeric mice. (J:71969)
