Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:75973
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe extracellular domain of the gene was disrupted by insertion of an IRES-lacZ-neo cassette at codon 373 via homologous recombination. The targeted mutation resembles a mutation found in patients with osteoporosis-pseudoglioma syndrome. Northern blot analysis of livers from homozygous mutant animals did not detect gene transcripts using a probe to exons 10-12, but a probe to exons 1-2 detected a truncated transcript. Immunohistochemistry detected a truncated protein in osteoblasts of homozygous mutants. (J:75973)
