Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Nr4a2tm1Niko
Name: nuclear receptor subfamily 4, group A, member 2; targeted mutation 1, Vera M Nikodem
MGI ID: MGI:2429971
Synonyms: Nurr1
Gene: Nr4a2  Location: Chr2:57106830-57124003 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 31.66 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:47684
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExon 3 was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette inserted by homologous recombination. The deleted region encoded amino acids 1 through 288, encompassing the initiating methionine and the first zinc finger domain. Transcript lacking exon 3 was detected in mutant mice by Northern blot analysis of brain tissue. Normal transcript was undetected in the substantia nigra and ventral tegmental area by in situ hybridization. (J:47684)
