Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Aptxtm1Pmc
Name: aprataxin; targeted mutation 1, Peter J McKinnon
MGI ID: MGI:3686875
Synonyms: Aptx-
Gene: Aptx  Location: Chr4:40682382-40703194 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr4, 20.46 cM, cytoband B1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:113297
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe two exons encompassing the HIT domain were deleted using cre mediated recombination. The deletion resulted in a frame-shift that caused the loss of the C-terminal 181 amino acids including the histidine triad and zinc finger domains. The mutant transcript was found to be expressed in various tissues, including brain, by Northern blot analysis. (J:113297)
