Mutation detailsAn frt-flanked neo cassette with a 3' loxP site was inserted downstream of exon 1 and an additional loxP site was inserted upstream of exon 1. Transient cre expression in ES cells ws used to remove exon 1 and the neo cassette. The absence of protein product was confirmed by western blot analysis on brain extracts. (J:135320)
