Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Liastm2.1Mae
Name: lipoic acid synthetase; targeted mutation 2.1, Nobuyo Maeda
MGI ID: MGI:5810126
Synonyms: LiasLow
Gene: Lias  Location: Chr5:65548840-65567766 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 33.66 cM, cytoband C3.3
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:236908
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6N
Allele Type:    Targeted (Hypomorph)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe targeting vector consists of a loxP site, the 3' UTR sequence of the bovine growth hormone gene, a neomycin cassette and a loxP site followed by the 3'-UTR sequence of the cFos gene. Cre-mediated recombination removed the bovine growth hormone gene and neo cassette, allowing cFos to drive expression of the endogenous gene. Expression is 25% of the endogenous gene expression.
