Synonyms: En2flox, En2lox
Gene: En2  Location: Chr5:28165694-28172166 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 13.94 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:156169
Parent Cell Line:  W4 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S6/SvEvTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe targeting construct contains a 3.1 kb En2 5' fragment, an Frt-flanked PGK-neo cassette followed by a LoxP site in the En2 intron and a 4.8 kb En2 genomic fragment containing a LoxP site in the XbaI site of the 3' UTR. Flpe-mediated recombination deleted the PGK-neo, producing an En2 allele with a floxed region. (J:156169)
