Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Gjb2tm1Ugds
Name: gap junction protein, beta 2; targeted mutation 1, Unite de Genetique des Deficits Sensoriels
MGI ID: MGI:2183509
Synonyms: Cx26fl, Cx26fl, Cx26loxP, Gjb2tm1Ptt
Gene: Gjb2  Location: Chr14:57098600-57104702 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr14, 30.1 cM, cytoband D1-E1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:77823
Parent Cell Line:  HM-1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd-Hprtb-m3
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe coding region in exon 2 was flanked by a loxP site in intron 1 and a floxed neo cassette inserted into exon 2. Immunohistofluorescence analysis showed that the expression pattern of this floxed allele did not differ from that of wild-type. (J:77823)
