Endonuclease-mediated Allele Detail
Symbol: Ace2em#Yngh
Name: angiotensin I converting enzyme (peptidyl-dipeptidase A) 2; endonuclease-mediated mutation, Huanming Yang
MGI ID: MGI:5752578
Synonyms: ACE2-KO
Gene: Ace2  Location: ChrX:162922338-162971414 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 76.12 cM, cytoband F5
Strain of Origin:  Kunming
Allele Type:    Endonuclease-mediated (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsTALEN technology was used to introduce mutations into exon 2. The population analyzed for phenotype contained individuals with alleles from 3 lines (#17, #20 and #24) containing: (1) a 4 bp deletion; (2) a 10 bp deletion; (3) a 3 bp deletion; (4) a 20 bp deletion with a single bp insertion; and (5) a single bp insertion. Northern blot analysis confirmed reduced expression of a long isoform. The short isoform is not detected in the colon of knock-out or control mice. The pound symbol (#) is used when no line is specified or lines are pooled. (J:221616)
