Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:176587
Parent Cell Line:  SM1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S6/SvEvTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Humanized sequence, Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutations:    Insertion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsA floxed pgk-neo cassette was inserted in intron 4 and point mutations were introduced into exon 5 (resulting in P202A and F203A substitutions) via homologous recombination. Livers from homozygous mice show increased expression of the mutant mRNA and protein compared to endogenous gene expression in wild-type controls. Subcellular localization of the mutant protein is similar to wild-type. (J:176587)
