Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Chattm1Fhg
Name: choline acetyltransferase; targeted mutation 1, Fred H Gage
MGI ID: MGI:2450310
Synonyms: ChAT(-)
Gene: Chat  Location: Chr14:32408203-32465909 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr14, 19.4 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:81738
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExons 11, 12, and 13 were replaced with a neomycin selection cassette inserted by homologous recombination. Normal protein was undetected by immunostaining of the basal forebrain of homozygous mutant embryos. Assays of the brain stem, spinal cord, and septum showed an absence of endogenous activity.
