Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Tac2tm1.1(cre)Qima
Name: tachykinin 2; targeted mutation 1.1, Qiufu Ma
MGI ID: MGI:5307922
Synonyms: Tac2-Cre
Gene: Tac2  Location: Chr10:127560347-127567637 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 74.81 cM, cytoband D3
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:180805
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129/Sv
Allele Type:    Targeted (Recombinase)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe cre coding sequence with a poly adenylation signal was inserted in-frame with the first ATG of the Tac2 gene by homologous recombination. The initial targeting vector contained an Frt-flanked neomycin cassette. Germline-transmitting mice were crossed with a Flp deleter strain to excise the neo cassette. Insertion of the cre cassette results in generation of a null allele of Tac2 demonstrated by absence of Tac2 expression in the dorsal spinal cord as detected by in situ hybridization. (J:180805)
