Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Chrna7tm1.1Ehs
Name: cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 7; targeted mutation 1.1, National Institute of Environmental Health Science
MGI ID: MGI:5620283
Synonyms: alpha7flox, alpha7nAChRflox
Gene: Chrna7  Location: Chr7:62748440-62862274 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 34.47 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:219327
Parent Cell Line:  ART B6-3, B6-3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe targeting vector contains a loxP site 290 bp upstream of exon 4 and loxP site followed by a FRT-flanked PGK-Neo selection cassette 380 bp downstream of exon 4. Flp-mediated recombination removed the FRT-flanked neo cassette leaving exon 4 floxed. (J:219327)
