Mutation
description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Modified regulatory region, Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
 
Mutation details3.7 kb of sequence in the intergenic region 3' of Il4 was replaced with a floxed neo cassette. The deleted region contained DNAse I hypersensitivity sites V and Va. These sites contain enhancers for Il4 transcription. The neo expression cassette was excised in vitro via the expression of cre recombinase. T lymphocytes and mast cells from homozygous mutant mice express reduced Il4 mRNA and protein. (J:78089)
