Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Hmox2tm1Poss
Name: heme oxygenase 2; targeted mutation 1, Kenneth D Poss
MGI ID: MGI:2388325
Synonyms: HO-2-, HO2-, HO-2delta
Gene: Hmox2  Location: Chr16:4726361-4766742 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr16, 2.46 cM, cytoband B1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:29523
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsApproximately 80% of the coding region was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette inserted by homologous recombination. The deleted region included the putative membrane spanning region. Transcript was undetected in homozygous mutant mice by Northern blot analysis of brain tissue. An assay based on bilirubin production indicated complete functional ablation in homozygous mutant mice. (J:29523)
