Gene: Il7r  Location: Chr15:9506159-9529941 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr15, 4.16 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:34658
Parent Cell Line:  E14.1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsHomologous recombination was used to replace exon 2, containing a conserved cysteine motif, with a neo cassette. RT-PCR revealed a shorter transcript in homozygous mutants than that of wild-type mice, putatively lacking exon 2 and resulting in a frame shift mutation. Flow cytometry indicated an absence of protein surface expression on homozygous spleen cells. (J:34658)
