Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Pdgfratm13Sor
Name: platelet derived growth factor receptor, alpha polypeptide; targeted mutation 13, Philippe Soriano
MGI ID: MGI:3838510
Synonyms: PDGFRalpha(S)J
Gene: Pdgfra  Location: Chr5:75312953-75358876 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 39.55 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:146617
Parent Cell Line:  AK7 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJaeSor
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, Constitutively active, Humanized sequence)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsExons 2 through 4 were replaced with a cDNA of the gene with nucleotide substitutions that result in an amino acid substitution of aspartic acid for valine at position 561 (V561D) preceded by a floxed neo-STOP cassette. This mutation is found in human patients with gastrointestinal stromal tumors and leads to a constitutively active form by disrupting the inhibitory conotacts between the juxtamembrane and kinase domain. Removal of the floxed neo-STOP cassette is necessary to achieve expression. (J:146617)
