Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Plectm1Gwi
Name: plectin; targeted mutation 1, Gerhard Wiche
MGI ID: MGI:2181791
Synonyms: exon 31-deficient
Gene: Plec  Location: Chr15:76170975-76232574 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr15, 35.48 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:59000
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 detailsExon 31, encoding the entire central rod domain, was replaced by a neomycin selection cassette. Transcript was undetected by RT-PCR analysis of samples derived from homozygous mutant skin and muscle tissue. An absence of protein was determined by immunoblot analysis of skin and muscle tissue derived from homozygous mutant mice. (J:59000)
