Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Vsx1tm2Mci
Name: visual system homeobox 1; targeted mutation 2, Roderick R McInnes
MGI ID: MGI:3033931
Synonyms: Vsx1:taulLacZ, VsxtauLacZ
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+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe first 86 bp of the exon 1 coding region were replaced when cassettes encoding lacZ and neo were inserted at the start codon. The remaining sequence of exon 1 and downstream exons were left intact. No protein was detected in homozygous mutant retinal tissue by immunofluorescence. lacZ expression was visualized via beta-gal staining. (J:88182)
