Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:79354
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe exon encoding the majority the 391 amino acid protein product was disrupted by the insertion of a neomycin selection cassette. While normal transcript was undetected by Northern blot analysis of homozygous mutant mice, trace levels of an elongated transcript were detected with a 3' probe. (J:79354)
