Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Foxn1tm3(cre)Nrm
Name: forkhead box N1; targeted mutation 3, Nancy R Manley
MGI ID: MGI:3760775
Synonyms: Foxn1ex9cre
Gene: Foxn1  Location: Chr11:78248403-78277384 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 46.74 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:125817
Parent Cell Line:  LK-1/LK1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Recombinase)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsAn IRES-cre and floxed or frt neo cassette were inserted into the 3' end of exon 9. Insertion was confirmed by PCR of genomic DNA. Removal of the neo cassette by frt-mediated recombination following a cross with Tg(ACTFLPe)9205Dym mice results in a loss of ectopic cre expression but specific expression is retained. RT-PCR was used to confirm that endogenous gene expression was unaffected. (J:125817)
