Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:50934
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA neomycin selection cassette was inserted into exon 7. An absence of transcript generated from this allele was determined by Northern blot and RT-PCR analyses of total bone RNA. Western blot analysis of protein extracts from homozygous mutant bone showed a lack or encoded protein. (J:50934)
