Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:101977
Parent Cell Line:  RF8 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S4/SvJae
Allele Type:    Targeted (Humanized sequence)
Mutations:    Insertion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsThe targeting construct is designed to insert a loxP- and an FRT-flanked neomycin (neo) resistance cassette downstream of coding region of the gene. Additionally, a nonsense mutation, R504X, is introduced in to exon 11. The mutation is analogous to the human mutation, R493X, and is commonly associated with frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Flp-mediated recombination removed the FRT-flanked neo cassette. (J:101977)
