Mutation detailsThe floxed region containing the exon encoding amino acids 189 through 260 and a downstream neo cassette was excised from Prkaa2tm1Vio in the germline via in vivo cre-mediated recombination. Protein was undetected by Western blot analysis of liver and muscle tissue obtained from homozygous mutant mice. (J:81120)
