Symbol: Mecp2tm1Hzo
Name: methyl CpG binding protein 2; targeted mutation 1, Huda Zoghbi
MGI ID: MGI:2183727
Synonyms: Mecp2308
Gene: Mecp2  Location: ChrX:74026592-74085690 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 37.63 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:78009
Parent Cell Line:  AB2.2 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprtb-m2
Allele Type:    Targeted
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA stop codon and a floxed neo cassette were inserted into exon 4. The stop codon was inserted downstream of codon 308, allowing translation of the methyl-CpG binding domain and the transcriptional repression domain. Western blot analysis showed that only truncated protein was present in homozygous mutant mice. Staining of brain tissue with a carboxy terminal antibody confirmed the absence of normal protein.
