Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Terttm1Sear
Name: telomerase reverse transcriptase; targeted mutation 1, Steven E Artandi
MGI ID: MGI:3764898
Synonyms: TERT-
Gene: Tert  Location: Chr13:73626911-73649843 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr13, 40.12 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:127153
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Not Specified
Mutation detailsThe gene locus contains 15 exons. A linearized targeting vector containing a neomycin cassette in the reverse orientation and exons 3-8 was used. After targeting, the allele contained a neomycin cassette in the reverse orientation after the endogenous exon 8, with exons 3-8 repeated downstream of the neo cassette. Insertion caused gene inactivation as determined by semi-quantitative RT-PCR on embryonic fibroblasts, liver, and testes. (J:127153, J:150343)
