Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Bsxtm2Aoh
Name: brain specific homeobox; targeted mutation 2, Akihira Ohtoshi
MGI ID: MGI:3719245
Synonyms: BsxlacZ
Gene: Bsx  Location: Chr9:40874127-40878962 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr9, 21.65 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:123638
Parent Cell Line:  PC3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae-Tg(Prm-cre)70Og
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsTargeting took place in PC3 ES cells homozygous for the Tg(Prm-cre)70Og transgene, which expresses Cre recombinase in male germ cells. A targeting vector containing lacZ sequence and a floxed neo cassette was inserted by homologous recombination in ES cells. The neo cassette was subsequently removed upon transmission from male chimeric mice, resulting in the deletion of the homeodomain and expression of the lacZ reporter. Absence of endogenous transcript was confirmed by RT-PCR. (J:123638)
