Mutation detailsA loxP-flanked PGK-neomycin resistance cassette replaced a genomic DNA fragment containing exon 4, which is highly conserved and often mutated in humans. An additional line was also produced in which the loxP flanked neomycin cassette was removed by Cre mediated recombination, but no distinction was made between these alleles in the original reference. From J:90098: The presence of a human FRDA transgene in hemizygous form in a Frdatm1Mkn homozygous null background rescues the embryonic lethal phenotype and complements for the loss of endogenous mouse frataxin.
