Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:194158
Parent Cell Line:  iTL BA1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6NTac x 129S6/SvEvTac)F1
Allele Type:    Targeted (Humanized sequence)
Mutations:    Insertion, Single point mutation
Mutation detailsExon 2 was replaced with a floxed neo cassette and a modified exon 2 in which a G to A transition results in the amino acid substitution of lysine for glutamic acid (E150K). Cre-mediated recombination removed the neo cassette. (J:194158)
