Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Sox2tm2Skn
Name: SRY (sex determining region Y)-box 2; targeted mutation 2, Silvia K Nicolis
MGI ID: MGI:2181440
Synonyms: allele 2, Sox2Beta-geo
Gene: Sox2  Location: Chr3:34650405-34652461 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr3, 16.93 cM, cytoband A2-B
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:62026
Parent Cell Line:  CCE/EK.CCE (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S/SvEv-Gpi1c
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe entire coding region was replaced by a construct containing a beta-geo fusion gene, lacking a promoter. Recombination of the construct left the 5' flanking region intact, enabling the expression of the beta-geo transgene to be under the control of the endogenous promoter and regulatory sequences.
