Mutant Cell Line:  LST020
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:134299
Parent Cell Line:  Other (see notes) (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Gene trapped (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion of gene trap vector     Vector: pGT2TMpfs     Vector Type: secretory trap
Mutation detailsThe gene trap vector pGT2TMpfs (contains a CD4 transmembrane domain, beta-geo cassette, IRES and PLAP reporter) was inserted into intron 1. The absence of full-length transcript was confirmed by RT-PCR on E12.5 embryo extracts. (J:134299)
