Mutant Cell Line:  3C7 (Harald von Melchner)
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:85162
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Gene trapped (Modified isoform(s))
Mutation:    Insertion of gene trap vector     Vector Type: gene trap
Mutation detailsA retroviral gene trap vector, containing cre recombinase and U3 sequences, integrated into intron 5 in a reverse transcriptional orientation. A 98% reduction in mRNA levels was identified in homozygous mutant mice by Northern blot analysis. Western blot analysis results were correlative. (J:47007, J:78819)
