Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Nkx6-2tm1Qiu
Name: NK6 homeobox 2; targeted mutation 1, Mengsheng Qiu
MGI ID: MGI:2182286
Synonyms: Nkx6.2-
Gene: Nkx6-2  Location: Chr7:139579376-139582797 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 84.57 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:69975
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExons 1 through 3 were deleted by the insertion of a neomycin selection cassette. RT-PCR analysis and in situ hybridization of embryonic midbrain showed an absence of transcript in homozygous mutant mice. The expression of Nkx6-1 was shown to be unaffected by the targeting event via in situ hybridization. (J:69975)
