Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Igs2tm2Kng
Name: intergenic site 2; targeted mutation 2, David M Kingsley
MGI ID: MGI:6095659
Synonyms: BLD-Kitlg
Gene: Igs2  Location: unknown  Genetic Position: Chr11, Syntenic
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:248381
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThe targeting construct contains an attB site, mouse Hsp68 minimal promoter, a human regulatory region (H2), mouse Kitl cDNA, SV40, an attB site and FRT5. The construct and phiC31 mRNA were co-injected into a single pronucleus of FVB-H11P3 zygotes. H2 is regulatory enhancer located in an intergenic region 350 kb upstream of the Kitl transcription start site, it contains a non-coding SNP (rs12821256) associated with hair color. The ancestral (ANC) polymorphism (A) is associated with brown hair, and the blond (BLD) polymorphism (G) is associated with blond hair. This allele carries the G polymorphism. (J:248381)
