Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:42815
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA 5 kb region of the gene encompassing exon 3 was replaced with a PGK-neo cassette via homologous recombination resulting in deletion of the second zinc finger of the DNA-binding domain. RT-PCR analysis of intestines and kidneys from homozygous mutant animals detected a mutant transcript. Sequence analysis revealed a 131 bp deletion corresponding to the second zinc finger and results in a frameshift and nonsense codon 12 bp downstream. (J:42815)
