Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:71126
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 detailsA neomycin selection cassette replaced 300 bp of exon 2/intron 2 including the translation start site. RT-PCR analysis on tooth germ isolated from homozygous mice demonstrated that a aberrant transcript was produced from this allele that spliced exon 1 to exon 3. However, protein analysis and western blot experiments confirmed that no detectable protein was expressed from this allele. (J:71126)
