Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Tead4tm1Hssk
Name: TEA domain family member 4; targeted mutation 1, Hiroshi Sasaki
MGI ID: MGI:3770620
Gene: Tead4  Location: Chr6:128227143-128300813 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 62.92 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:130047
Parent Cell Line:  TT2 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6NCrlj x CBA/JNCrlj)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe gene was disrupted by insertion into exon 2, which encodes the DNA-binding TEA domain of the protein, of two functional cassettes: 1) a loxP-flanked Pgk-neo-poly(A) cassette, followed by 2) a cDNA encoding the beta-geo (E. coli beta-galactosidase/neomycin resistance) fusion protein flanked 5' by an internal ribosomal entry site (IRES) and 3' by a polyadenylation signal. Reverse transcription- (RT-) PCR using primers in exons 5 and 6 detects no transcripts from the mutant allele in homozygous E3.5 embryos. Whereas immunohistochemical analysis with antisera to TEAD4 stains all cell nuclei of 34-36-cell wild-type embryos, mutant embryos produce no signal. (J:130047)
