Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Six3tm3Gco
Name: sine oculis-related homeobox 3; targeted mutation 3, Guillermo Oliver
MGI ID: MGI:3814869
Synonyms: Six3cki, Six3V250
Gene: Six3  Location: Chr17:85613608-85629302 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr17, 55.42 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:140315
Parent Cell Line:  W9.5/W95 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S1/Sv-Oca2+ Tyr+ Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA single bp transition (T749C) was introduced into the first exon. This causes a valine to alanine change at amino acid residue 250. In addition, a floxed cassette containing a stop codon and a neomycin resistance gene was inserted upstream of the first exon thus inactivating the knocked-in mutation. (J:140315)
