Mutation detailsA targeting vector containing neomycin resistance and herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase genes was used to disrupt 1.9kb of sequence of exon 1, which encodes all of the cytoplasmic and transmembran domains as well as part of the extracellular region. Neither the long or short isoform of the encoded protein is expressed from this allele. (J:37846)
