Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Calcatm1Hku
Name: calcitonin/calcitonin-related polypeptide, alpha; targeted mutation 1, Hiroki Kurihara
MGI ID: MGI:2445489
Synonyms: alphaCGRP-, CGRP-
Gene: Calca  Location: Chr7:114631478-114636357 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 59.99 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:80225
Parent Cell Line:  SM1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S6/SvEvTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe alphaCGRP sequence was disrupted by replacement of exon 5 with a PGK-neo cassette leaving the calcitonin (CT) sequence uninterrupted. RT-PCR analysis confirmed the absence of alphaCGRP expression in mutant mice while CT expression appears unaffected. Immunohistochemical analysis did not detect alphaCGRP protein in the spinal cords of mutant animals, but thyroid gland samples stain positive for CT. (J:80225)
