Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Pla2g4atm1Tksh
Name: phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent); targeted mutation 1, Takao Shimizu
MGI ID: MGI:2385582
Synonyms: cpla2-, cPLA2alpha, cPLA2 GIVA, IVA PLA2-
Gene: Pla2g4a  Location: Chr1:149829618-149961290 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr1, 63.51 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:39254
Parent Cell Line:  E14.1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted by replacement of part of the exon encoding the lipase consensus motif and serine 228, a residue required for enzymatic activity. Absence of gene expression in the spleen of homozygous animals was verified by Northern blot and Western blot analyses. (J:39254)
