Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Mecp2tm3.1Bird
Name: methyl CpG binding protein 2; targeted mutation 3.1, Adrian Bird
MGI ID: MGI:4938309
Synonyms: MECP2-EGFP
Gene: Mecp2  Location: ChrX:74026592-74085690 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 37.63 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:168822
Parent Cell Line:  E14TG2a (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA targeting construct was designed to insert an enhanced green fluorescent protein sequence (EGFP) sequence (preceded by sequence for linker peptide CKDPPVAT) and a loxP-flanked neomycin (neo) resistance sequence-STOP cassette in the 3' UTR. Subsequent cre-mediated recombination removed the floxed neo-STOP cassette. This allele expresses a chimeric protein with the EGFP peptide linked to the C-terminus of the endogenous peptide.
