Gene: Slc1a2  Location: Chr2:102658659-102790784 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 54.13 cM
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:221590
Parent Cell Line:  J1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA loxP site was inserted 217 bp (2:102739471) upstream of exon 4 and an FRT flanked neo cassette and loxP site were inserted 419 bp (2:102740358-102740394) downstream of exon 4 via homologous recombination. Flp mediated recombination removed the neo cassette leaving exon 4 floxed. (J:221590)
