MGI ID: MGI:3609205
Synonyms: gamma-8-
Gene: Cacng8  Location: Chr7:3442558-3464782 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 1.98 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:102515
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe locus was disrupted by the replacement of exons 2 and 3 with a neomycin resistance gene. Quantitative immunoblot of hippocampal extracts of mutants confirms the absence of protein. (J:102515)
