Gene trapped Allele Detail
Symbol: Mkrn1Gt(RRB087)Byg
Name: makorin, ring finger protein, 1; gene trap mutation RRB087, BayGenomics
MGI ID: MGI:3665258
Gene: Mkrn1  Location: Chr6:39397804-39420462 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 18.18 cM
Mutant Cell Line:  RRB087
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:111785
Parent Cell Line:  Other (see notes) (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Gene trapped (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion of gene trap vector     Vector: pGT1Lxf     Vector Type: gene trap
Mutation detailsA gene trap vector inserted into intron 3. Gene-trapped transcripts contain a beta-geo fusion sequence, and lack exons 4-8. The encoded proteins lack four of the Makorin family zinc-finger motifs, including the essential RING E3 ubiquitin ligase domain. Histochemical visualization of the expressed fusion protein refined existing data that this gene is widely expressed and very abundant in specific cell types of the central nervous system and testis.
