Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Sspntm1Kcam
Name: sarcospan; targeted mutation 1, Kevin P Campbell
MGI ID: MGI:2387936
Gene: Sspn  Location: Chr6:145931641-145965223 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 77.7 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:60294
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted by replacement of exons 2 and 3 with a PGK-neo cassette resulting in deletion of sequences encoding 3 of 4 transmembrane domains, the extracellular loop, and the C-terminal intracellular domain. Absence of gene expression in homozygous animals was demonstrated by Northern blot analysis of skeletal muscle RNA. Western blot analysis of skeletal muscle microsomes, and immunofluorescence analysis of smooth muscle cells from the small intestines further confirmed the absence of encoded protein in homozygous animals.
