Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Prmt8tm1d(EUCOMM)Wtsi
Name: protein arginine N-methyltransferase 8; targeted mutation 1d, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute
MGI ID: MGI:5806495
Synonyms: prmt8-
Gene: Prmt8  Location: Chr6:127689009-127769467 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 62.49 cM
Mutant Cell Line:  EPD0105_1_A03
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:234033
Parent Cell Line:  JM8.F6 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6N
Project Collection: EUCOMM
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion     Vector: L1L2_Bact_P
Mutation detailsThe L1L2_Bact_P cassette was inserted at position 127712375 of Chromosome 6 upstream of exon 5 (Build GRCm38). The cassette is composed of an FRT site followed by lacZ sequence and a loxP site. This first loxP site is followed by neomycin resistance gene under the control of the human beta-actin promoter, SV40 polyA, a second FRT site and a second loxP site. A third loxP site is inserted downstream of exon 5 at position 127711543. A knockout allele was created by flp and cre recombinase expression in mice, removing exon 5, the lacZ sequence and neomycin selection cassette. qRT-PCR analysis indicated that mRNA expression in the cerebellum was decreased by 45% in heterozygous and by >95% in homozygous mutant mice relative to wild-type controls.
