Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Ireb2tm1Roua
Name: iron responsive element binding protein 2; targeted mutation 1, Tracey Rouault
MGI ID: MGI:2181660
Synonyms: Ireb2-, IRP-2-, IRP2-
Gene: Ireb2  Location: Chr9:54863789-54912530 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr9, 29.81 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:67313
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe insertion of a neomycin cassette deleted portions of exon 3 and 4. Northern blot analysis showed the presence of a larger transcript, containing the neomycin gene, in homozygous mutant mice. A lack of Ireb2 protein and normal levels of Ireb1 was determined by Western blot analysis of fibroblast lysates derived from homozygous mutant mice. (J:67313)
