Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Upp1tm1Gp
Name: uridine phosphorylase 1; targeted mutation 1, Giuseppe Pizzorno
MGI ID: MGI:3586525
Synonyms: UPase-
Gene: Upp1  Location: Chr11:9118103-9136170 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 6.13 cM, cytoband A1-2
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:99912
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsPart of exon 3, all of exon 4 and most of exon 5 were replaced with a neomycin resistance gene. This deletion resulted in the loss of 92 amino acids followed by a frame shift. RT-PCR of mutant liver, gut, lung and kidney confirmed absence of transcript. (J:100071)
