Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:229887
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA targeting vector was designed to insert a loxP site followed by a frt-flanked neomycin resistance (neo) cassette upstream of exon 3, and a second loxP site downstream of exon 5. Flp-mediated recombination removed the selection cassette and left exons 3 through 5 floxed. (J:229887)
