Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Prnptm2Edin
Name: prion protein; targeted mutation 2, Edinburgh University
MGI ID: MGI:2387688
Synonyms: mPrP0/0, NPU, PrnpEdbg, Prnp- Edinburgh, PrP-
Gene: Prnp  Location: Chr2:131909928-131938429 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 64.07 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:20398
Parent Cell Line:  E14 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted by insertion of a neomycin resistance cassette (under the control of a mouse metallothionein promoter) into exon 3. Northern blot analysis of brain mRNA from homozygous mutant animals did not detect gene transcript, but detected the neo transcript. Western blot of brain membrane fractions from homozygous animals further confirmed the null allele. (J:20398)
