Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Astn2ridge
Name: astrotactin 2; ridge
MGI ID: MGI:6093704
Synonyms: ridge
Gene: Astn2  Location: Chr4:65380803-66404611 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr4, 34.31 cM, cytoband C1
Strain of Origin:  129X1/SvJ
Allele Type:    Spontaneous (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe molecular lesion is a a ~30 kb deletion that encompasses exon 5 and has endpoints within a pair of LINE elements. PCR typing showed that the ~30 kb deletion is present in both R1 ES cells and in 129X1/SvJ mice, but not in the closely related 129S1/SvlmJ or 129S6/SvEvTac strains. (J:228899)
