Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Klk8tm1Lth
Name: kallikrein related-peptidase 8; targeted mutation 1, Richard Lathe
MGI ID: MGI:2388384
Gene: Klk8  Location: Chr7:43797577-43803826 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 28.26 cM, cytoband B4
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:71533
Parent Cell Line:  E14TG2a (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted by replacment of the region of exon 3 encoding the aspartic acid region of the catalytic site with a lacZ-neo cassette. The targeting construct introduces stop codons in all 3 reading frames. Northern blot analysis of brain RNA verified the absence of gene expression in homozygous mutant animals. X-gal staining of mutant brains did not detect any lacZ expression. (J:71533)
