Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Adra1atm1Pcs
Name: adrenergic receptor, alpha 1a; targeted mutation 1, Paul C Simpson
MGI ID: MGI:2387663
Gene: Adra1a  Location: Chr14:66872700-67008617 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr14, 34.6 cM, cytoband D1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:77732
Parent Cell Line:  RW-4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExon 1 and 415 bp of intron 1 were replaced with a cassette containing lacZ and neo genes. The deleted region encoded the receptor and transmembrane regions 1 through 5. The absence of transcript was confirmed by both RT-PCR analysis and RNAse protection. Binding assays showed adrenergic receptor binding to be reduced by approximately 50% in brain and kidney tissues and by 70% in heart tissue, all obtained from homozygous mutant mice. Expression of beta-galactosidase was driven by the endogenous promoter. (J:77732)
