Mutation
description
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion     Vector: L1L2_Bact_P
 
Mutation detailsThe L1L2_Bact_P cassette was inserted at position 27980523 of Chromosome 6 upstream of the critical exon(s) (Build GRCm39). The cassette is composed of an FRT site followed by lacZ sequence and a loxP site. This first loxP site is followed by a neomycin resistance gene under the control of the human beta-actin promoter, SV40 polyA, a second FRT site and a second loxP site. A third loxP site is inserted downstream of the targeted exon(s) at position 27981670. The critical exon(s) is/are thus flanked by loxP sites. A "conditional ready" (floxed) allele can be created by flp recombinase expression in mice carrying this allele. Subsequent cre expression results in a knockout mouse. If cre expression occurs without flp expression, a reporter knockout mouse will be created.
