Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:52281
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA PGK-neo cassette was inserted into the first coding exon of the endogenous gene, deleting 15 bp upstream of the translational start site and 111 codons. Transcript was undetected in homozygous mutant mice by Northern blot and RT-PCR analyses. Western blot analysis indicated an absence of protein in whole retinal homogenates. (J:52281)
