Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:102190
Parent Cell Line:  JM-1 (ES Cell)

Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA pgk-neo flanked by FRT sites with a loxP site at the 3' end was inserted into intron 4. A second loxP site was inserted into intron 3. Crossing with mice expressing FLP recombinase removed the pgk-neo, leaving mice with a flanked exon 4. Exon 4 encodes the integrin I-like domain. Cre-mediated deletion of this exon would result in a translational frameshift that generates a premature stop codon. (J:102190)
