Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Kcnj8tm1Sse
Name: potassium inwardly-rectifying channel, subfamily J, member 8; targeted mutation 1, Susumu Seino
MGI ID: MGI:2180015
Synonyms: Kir6.1-null
Gene: Kcnj8  Location: Chr6:142564837-142571614 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 74.31 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:76195
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 detailsPart of intron 2 and exon 3, which encode the pore-forming region of the ion channel, were replaced with a neomycin resistance cassette via homologous recombination. Lack of gene expression in brain, heart, and liver of homozygous mutant animals was confirmed via Northern blot analysis. (J:76195)
