Name: solute carrier family 2, (facilitated glucose transporter), member 8; targeted mutation 1.1, Annette Schuermann
MGI ID: MGI:4450978
Synonyms: GLUT8 knockout, Slc2a8-
Gene: Slc2a8  Location: Chr2:32972990-32982083 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 22.09 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:159441
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA loxP site was inserted upstream of exon 5 and another downstream of exon 7; a PGK-neo/HSV-tk cassette (neo/tk) followed by a third loxP site was inserted in intron 7 further downstream. The present allele was generated by Cre recombinase excision of the neo/tk cassette and exons 5 through 7 of the endogenous gene. (J:159441)
