Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted by replacing part of exon 1 with a lacZ-PGK-neo cassette via homologous recombination resulting in fusion of the lacZ gene 16 bp upstream of the ATG start codon. Gene expression was absent in homozygous mutant animals as shown by RT-PCR analysis using different sets of primers to the gene. (J:76005)
