Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Rtn4tm2Matl
Name: reticulon 4; targeted mutation 2, Marc Tessier-Lavigne
MGI ID: MGI:2661167
Synonyms: Nogo-A/B/C
Gene: Rtn4  Location: Chr11:29692947-29744331 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 16.79 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:83192
Parent Cell Line:  AB2.2 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprtb-m2
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe first of 6 exons common to isoforms A, B, and C was replaced with a floxed neo cassette inserted by homologous recombination. The deleted exon encodes the first transmembrane domain and a portion of an extracellular loop. While a shortened C transcript was identified by Northern blot analysis, A and B transcripts were undetected in homozygous mutant mice. RT-PCR and sequence analysis showed the aberrant transcript to lack the neo cassette (as well as the 66 codons it had replaced) and to contain a frameshift mutation after the first 11 codons.
