Mutation
description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Modified regulatory region, Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
 
Mutation detailsThe core region of a cis regulatory element that silences expression of the endogenous locus during T cell development was deleted from intron 1 via homologous recombination of a targeting construct lacking nucleotides 167 through 257. A single loxP site was left upstream of the deleted region, however analysis of a control allele indicated that the loxP site did not affect normal expression. Flow cytometric analysis of peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from mutant mice showed no silencing of Cd4 expression. (J:80576)

Notes
Additional alleles engineered to lack nucleotides within the core silencer and others engineered to lack surrounding sequences showed variegated expression of Cd4.
