Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:111287
Parent Cell Line:  v6.5 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x 129S4/SvJae)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsExons 39-43 were replaced by the PGK1-Neo selection marker. RT-PCR demonstrated expression of a transcript resulting from exon 38 splicing to exon 44. Protein was expressed in mutants, resulting from the shorter, mutant transcript. (J:111287)
