Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:74479
Parent Cell Line:  Other (see notes) (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExons 2 and 3, comprising the entire coding region, were replaced with a targeting construct containing a neomycin resistance gene. Expression analysis confirmed the absence of transcript in homozygous mutant mice. (J:74479)

Carrying any Atf4 Mutation:  13 strains or lines available
ES cell line = HM1 (129P2/OlaHsd-Hprtb-m3) or R1 ((129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+).

The data presented in J:74479 were obtained using R1 ES cells, though the authors report that they also generated mice with targeted alleles using HM1 ES cells.
