Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Gata4tm1.1Sad
Name: GATA binding protein 4; targeted mutation 1.1, Stephen A Duncan
MGI ID: MGI:3778685
Synonyms: Gata4loxP
Gene: Gata4  Location: Chr14:63436371-63509141 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr14, 33.24 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:92434
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA targeting vector was designed to place a loxP-flanked thymidine kinase/neomycin phosphotransferase expression (tk/neo) cassette upstream of exon 3, and a third loxP site just downstream of exon 5 of the targeted gene. Correctly targeted ES cells were transiently transfected with a cre expressing plasmid to remove the selection cassette (generating the Gata4-loxP allele; with one loxP site upstream of exon 3 and one loxP site downstream of exon 5). (details provided by SA Duncan, personal communication.) (J:92434)
