Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:80925
Parent Cell Line:  HM-1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd-Hprtb-m3
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsSequence encompassing a portion of intron 4 and all of exon 5 was replaced with a Hprt minigene inserted by homologous recombination. The deleted region encoded the conserved zinc-binding site of the catalytic domain. Northern blot analysis of total RNA obtained from homozygous mutant incisor homogenates indicated a lack of transcript containing exon 5. Enamelysin activity was undetected by zymography of proteins isolated from molars of postnatal homozygous mutant mice. (J:80925)
