Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Hsf2tm1Mmr
Name: heat shock factor 2; targeted mutation 1, Michel Morange
MGI ID: MGI:2182620
Synonyms: Hsf2-
Gene: Hsf2  Location: Chr10:57486385-57513135 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 29.19 cM, cytoband B3-B4
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:76942
Parent Cell Line:  CK35 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe gene is disrupted by insertion of a lacZ-neo cassette into exon 5 via homologous recombination. The gene targeting event results in the disruption of the oligomerization domain at lysine 167 and disruption of one of two nuclear localization signals while HSE-binding activity is retained. The mutant protein is expected to be cytoplasmic and lack trimerization abilities. RT-PCR and Western blot analyses confirmed the absence of gene expression in testes of homozygous mutant animals and homozygous mutant embryos. (J:76942)
