Gene: Vsx1  Location: Chr2:150680702-150689360 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 74.74 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:88182
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+

Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA genomic fragment, encompassing a portion of exon 1 and all of exons 2 through 4, was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette inserted by homologous recombination. 86 bp of the exon 1 coding region, as well as the coding region of exon 5, were left intact, however no protein was detected in homozygous mutant retinal tissue by immunofluorescence.
