Gene trapped Allele Detail
Symbol: FlnbGt(RRF239)Byg
Name: filamin, beta; gene trap RRF239, BayGenomics
MGI ID: MGI:3775521
Synonyms: Flnb-
Gene: Flnb  Location: Chr14:7817957-7951588 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr14, 4.59 cM
Mutant Cell Line:  RRF239
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:132026
Parent Cell Line:  Other (see notes) (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Gene trapped (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion of gene trap vector     Vector: pGT0Lxf     Vector Type: gene trap
Mutation detailsA BayGenomics gene trap vector was inserted into intron 3 to create an in frame 5' fusion product of exons 1-3 followed by the reporter beta-geo. The absence of the full length filamin B protein was confirmed by western blot. A beta-galactosidase assay confirmed expression of the lacZ fusion product. (J:132026)
