Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Vax2tm1Grl
Name: ventral anterior homeobox 2; targeted mutation 1, Greg Lemke
MGI ID: MGI:2388160
Synonyms: Vax2-
Gene: Vax2  Location: Chr6:83688246-83715295 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 35.94 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:74240
Parent Cell Line:  W9.5/W95 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S1/Sv-Oca2+ Tyr+ Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExon 2 was replaced by a neo cassette inserted by homologous recombination. RT-PCR analysis identified shortened transcript in homozygous mutant mice, lacking the targeted region, which encoded the first two alpha helices (residues 83 through 145) of the homeodomain. A loss of immunoreactivity was observed in the homozygous mutant retina. (J:74240)
