Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Ptgs2tm1Gaf
Name: prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2; targeted mutation 1, Garret A FitzGerald
MGI ID: MGI:3844713
Synonyms: CM-COX-2, COX-2flox
Gene: Ptgs2  Location: Chr1:150100031-150108227 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr1, 63.84 cM, cytoband H1
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:148331
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsExons 6, 7, and 8 that are critical for enzymatic function were flanked by loxP sites. PGE-2 production by activated peritoneal macrophages is unaffected in mice homozygous for this allele, indicating that gene function was not disrupted. (J:148331)
