Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Tectatm1Gpr
Name: tectorin alpha; targeted mutation 1, Guy P Richardson
MGI ID: MGI:2183148
Synonyms: TectadeltaENT
Gene: Tecta  Location: Chr9:42329619-42399929 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr9, 23.63 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:77634
Parent Cell Line:  CCB (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S/SvEv-Gpi1c
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe insertion of a neomycin selection cassette disrupted exon 3. RT-PCR and sequence analysis of mutant mice revealed that the insertion of the neo cassette resulted in exon skipping, producing a transcript in which exons 2 and 4 are joined. While, encoded protein was undetected in homozygous mutant mice via Western blot analysis, immunofluorescence analysis showed immunoreactivity in the greater epithelial ridge and in isolated spots in the tectorial membrane.
