Symbol: Tnfrsf11btm1Wss
Name: tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily, member 11b (osteoprotegerin); targeted mutation 1, W Scott Simonet
MGI ID: MGI:2183229
Synonyms: OPG-
Gene: Tnfrsf11b  Location: Chr15:54250619-54278484 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr15, 21.15 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:47602
Parent Cell Line:  RW-4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin selection cassette into exon 2 replaced sequence encoded the first 93 residues of the mature protein. This targeting strategy eliminated the first two cysteine-rich domains, which are essential for function, and introduced an in-frame stop codon. Northern blot analysis of total hepatic RNA confirmed the absence of transcript in homozygous mutant mice. (J:47602)
