Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Matn3tm1Brd
Name: matrilin 3; targeted mutation 1, Allan Bradley
MGI ID: MGI:3663272
Synonyms: Matn3Brdm1, Matn3Brdtm1, Matn3m1
Gene: Matn3  Location: Chr12:8947929-8972028 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr12, 3.96 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:112002
Parent Cell Line:  AB2.2 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprtb-m2
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA stop codon was introduced into exon 2, as well as a neomycin resistance cassette. RT-PCR confirmed the lack of wild-type transcript in mutants. It was demonstrated that exon 1 spliced to exon 3, resulting in a frame shift that would putatively result in a nonsense protein containing only the signal peptide. The allele is concluded to be a null. (J:112002)
