Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:36567
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin cassette replaced exons 5 through 8, encoding catalytic subdomain I that contains a portion of an ATP-binding site. The insertion also altered the downstream reading frame. Northern blot analysis of mutant embryos showed a 62% reduction of transcripts in heterozygotes and an absence of transcripts in homozygotes. Western blot analysis showed correlative results.
