Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Mefvtm1Chae
Name: Mediterranean fever; targeted mutation 1, Jae Jin Chae
MGI ID: MGI:2655791
Gene: Mefv  Location: Chr16:3525082-3535961 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr16, 2.18 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:82763
Parent Cell Line:  TC1/TC-1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S6/SvEvTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsHomologous recombination of a targeting vector containing EGFP and neo replaced a 3' portion of exon 3. The disruption was designed to leave the PYRIN domain intact, similar to mutations identified in patients with famial mediterrean fever. Western blot analysis of peritoneal macrophages obtained from homozygous mutant mice identified a truncated protein containing GFP. (J:82763)
