Symbol: Plp1tm2Wst
Name: proteolipid protein (myelin) 1; targeted mutation 2, Wilhelm Stoffel
MGI ID: MGI:2384127
Synonyms: dm20/neo
Gene: Plp1  Location: ChrX:136822671-136839733 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 59.1 cM, cytoband F1-F2
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:21976
Parent Cell Line:  E14 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation details105 bp of exon 3 were deleted to mimic the DM20 isoform and a neomycin resistance cassette was inserted into intron 3 to disrupt splicing of the gene product. Northern blot analysis confirmed the absence of normal transcripts in the brain of homozygous mutant animals. Western blot analysis and silver stained SDS-PAGE gels of myelin samples from homozygous mutants did not detect protein product of either isoform, PLP or DM20. (J:21976)
