Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:106082
Parent Cell Line:  CCE/EK.CCE (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S/SvEv-Gpi1c
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA neomycin resistance cassette replaces exon 7, which encodes amino acids 584-670 comprising transmembrane domains 4 and 5 and a small part of the pore domain. Segments of mRNA upstream or downstream of the deletion cannot be amplified by RT-PCR from total lung RNA of homozygous mutant mice. (J:106082)

The reported phenotypes did not differ among mice from backcross generations N1 through N10 to C57BL/6J.

Trpc3 mRNA is elevated 3- to 5-fold in thoracic aorta and 2-fold in cerebral arteries of mutant mice compared to wild-type littermates, and Trpc7 mRNA is increased 2-fold in mutant cerebral arteries; levels of other Trpc mRNAs do not differ between mutant and control vessels.
