Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Slc1a2tm1Kta
Name: solute carrier family 1 (glial high affinity glutamate transporter), member 2; targeted mutation 1, Kohichi Tanaka
MGI ID: MGI:2449707
Synonyms: EAAT2 KO, GLT-1-
Gene: Slc1a2  Location: Chr2:102658659-102790784 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 54.13 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:40984
Parent Cell Line:  E14 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe exon encoding the putative third transmembrane domain was disrupted by the insertion of a neomycin selection cassette. While transcript of approximately normal length was detected by Northern blot analysis of homozygous mutant cerebral RNA, RT-PCR analysis showed the transcript to lack exon 4. An absence of normal transcript was confirmed by in situ hybridization. Protein was undetected by Western blot analysis of cerebral membrane fractions. (J:40984)
