description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
 
Mutation detailsA targeting construct was designed to replace exons 7 and 8 with a lacZ and neo cassette. The putative transcript would have a dysfunctional aminoterminal fragment, terminating in the extracellular E2 domain at a position that corresponds to amino acid 229 of the human transcript.
