Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Ank2tm2.1Bnt
Name: ankyrin 2, brain; targeted mutation 2.1, Vann Bennett
MGI ID: MGI:5646021
Synonyms: Ank2L1622I, Ank2tm2.1(L1622I)Bnt
Gene: Ank2  Location: Chr3:126921612-127499350 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr3, 56.07 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:222913
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129
Allele Type:    Targeted (Humanized sequence)
Mutations:    Insertion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsAn L1622I (CTG to ATC) mutation in exon 19 and loxP-flanked neomycin cassette were knocked into the gene. In humans, the mutation is involved with the setting of hereditary cardiac arrhythmia. Cre-mediated recombination removed the selection cassette. Western blot analysis confirmed reduced protein expression in the fat, liver, skeletal muscle, pancreatic beta cells, mouse embryonic fibroblasts and heart but not the brain. (J:222913)
