Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:126704
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)

Mutation detailsExon 1 was replaced with a neomycin resistance cassette. Southern blotting confirmed recombination but RT-PCR of exon 2 detected a transcript from the gene. Amplification and sequencing of the transcript revealed a previously unknown exon upstream of the targeted exon that was splicing to exon 2. Because no translational start site was found in this sequence, the mutation was predicted not to produce a functional protein. This was confirmed by immunohistochemistry on the hypothalamus.
