Symbol: Cdh8tm1Mta
Name: cadherin 8; targeted mutation 1, Masatoshi Takeichi
MGI ID: MGI:3707077
Synonyms: Cad8-, Cdh8LacZ
Gene: Cdh8  Location: Chr8:99024471-99416471 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr8, 49.4 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:120130
Parent Cell Line:  E14TG2a (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
