Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:158671
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6 x 129P2/OlaHsd)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsTwo loxP sites were inserted to flank exon 3 of the gene, followed by an SA-IRES-lacZ-neo-SVpA cassette and a third loxP site after the cassette in intron 3. The flanked exon 3 and SA-IRES-lacZ-neo-SVpA cassette were deleted by Cre mediated recombination. (J:158671)
