MGI ID: MGI:2388395
Synonyms: K6ab-null, MK6a/b-
Gene: Krt6a  Location: Chr15:101689928-101694305 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr15, 56.97 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:70812
Parent Cell Line:  AB2.2 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprtb-m2
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intergenic deletion
Mutation detailsAn 18 kb region containing the entire coding sequences of Krt2-6a and Krt-6b, and including 10.5 kb of intervening sequences, was deleted and replaced with an HPRT-neo minigene via homologous recombination. Absence of expression of both genes in homozygous mutant animals was confirmed by RNase protection assay of skin and hair follicles. (J:70812)
