MGI ID: MGI:2179132
Synonyms: taut-
Gene: Slc6a6  Location: Chr6:91684053-91759066 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 40.73 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:74276
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ

Mutation detailsExon 1 of this gene was replaced with a neomycin resistance gene via homologous recombination, resulting in a truncated protein deleted for transmembrane domains 1-2 as well as a large portion of the extracellular region. Transcripts including exon 1 were not expressed in kidney and liver of homozygous mutant animals as assayed by Northern blot. (J:74276)
