Symbol: Gabra1tm1Twr
Name: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, subunit alpha 1; targeted mutation 1, Thomas W Rosahl
MGI ID: MGI:2177612
Synonyms: alpha1 -, alpha10
Gene: Gabra1  Location: Chr11:42130939-42182930 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 24.97 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:69290
Parent Cell Line:  AB2.2 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprtb-m2

Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsPart of exon 4 and part of intron 4 was replaced with a loxP flanked neomycin resistance cassette. Northern blot analysis on RNA derived from homozygous mice demonstrated that no detectable transcript was produced from this allele. Western blot analysis on brain lysates derived from homozygotes confirmed that no detectable protein is expressed from this allele. (J:69290)
