Name: microtubule-associated protein tau; targeted mutation 1, Rudolf Jaenisch
MGI ID: MGI:3043293
Synonyms: Tau-Mecp2 ki
Gene: Mapt  Location: Chr11:104231390-104332090 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 67.79 cM, cytoband E1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:89593
Parent Cell Line:  v6.5 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x 129S4/SvJae)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Inserted expressed sequence, Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mapttm1(Mecp2)Jae expresses 1 gene
Mutation detailsThe mouse Mecp2 coding sequence, a modified Kozak sequence and a neo-cassette were placed in-frame into exon 1 of Mapt via homologous combination. The resulting fusion protein contained the first 31 amino acids of Mapt fused to Mecp2 and was highly expressed in the brain (in post-mitotic neurons), lung, and kidney. (J:89593)
