Mutant Cell Line:  2561
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:101679
Parent Cell Line:  E14 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Project Collection: Deltagen
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA bacterial lacZ gene was inserted into the gene such that the endogenous gene promoter drives expression of beta-galactosidase. While RT-PCR analysis detects a gene transcript in all tissues tested, strong beta-galactosidase expression from this allele is detectable in brain, spinal cord, eyes, Harderian glands, thymus, spleen, lymph nodes, aorta, heart, lung, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidney, urinary bladder, trachea, larynx, esophagus, thyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal glands, salivary glands, tongue, skeletal muscle, skin, male and female reproductive systems. In many tissues lacZ is expressed in smooth muscle cells.
