Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Mcm2tm1(cre/ERT2)Scpr
Name: minichromosome maintenance complex component 2; targeted mutation 1, Steven C Pruitt
MGI ID: MGI:3818719
Synonyms: Mcm2IRES-CreERT2, Mcm2tm1(cre)Scpr
Gene: Mcm2  Location: Chr6:88860456-88875762 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 39.64 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:141493
Parent Cell Line:  W4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S6/SvEvTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Inducible, Recombinase)
Inducer:    tamoxifen
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsAn IRES element, a cre/ESRI fusion gene. and a PGK-neo selection cassette were inserted into exon 16 3' to the stop codon. A cryptic polyA site 3' of the stop codon was deleted in order to permit cre expression. Cre expression was confirmed by EGFP expression after tamoxifen treatment of mice also carrying the Tg(CAG-Bgeo/GFP)21Lbe transgene. MCM2 expression was reduced to 62% of normal in heterozygotes and 35% in homozygotes. (J:141493)
