description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intergenic deletion
 
Mutation detailsTwo closely linked genes were deleted using a single targeting event. The entire Krt2-6a gene, 13 kb of intergenic sequences, and the first half of Krt2-6b exon 1 were replaced with a neomycin resistance cassette via homologous recombination. RT-PCR and Northern blot analysis of cultured keratinocytes derived from homozygous mutant animals did not detect Krt2-6a or Krt2-6b transcripts, however a probe to the neo gene yielded positive results. Western blot analysis also failed to detect either Krt2-6a or Krt2-6b protein products. (J:64033)
