Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Men1tm1Zqw
Name: multiple endocrine neoplasia 1; targeted mutation 1, Zhao-Qi Wang
MGI ID: MGI:2664869
Synonyms: Men1T
Gene: Men1  Location: Chr19:6334979-6340891 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr19, 4.45 cM, cytoband A
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:83882
Parent Cell Line:  E14.1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA cassette expressing the neomycin resistance gene and the thymidine kinase gene flanked by loxP sites was inserted into intron 2. An additional loxP site was placed in intron 3. Homologous recombination was confirmed by Southern blots. The insertion of a neoTK cassette into intron 2 of the Men1 locus (the T allele) disrupted the Men1 expression at RNA and protein levels, as shown by RT-PCR and Western blot, respectively. (J:83882)
