Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:43449
Parent Cell Line:  AB2.1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprtb-m2

Mutation detailsSequence encompassing all of exons 13 and 14 as well as a portion of exon 15 was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette. mRNA was undetected by Northern blot analysis of liver tissue obtained from homozygous mutant mice. A biochemical assay showed glycerol kinase activity to be reduced by over 95% in liver, kidney, and brown fat. (J:43449)
