Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Galnt2tm1.2Mrl
Name: polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2; targeted mutation 1.2, Merck Research Laboratory
MGI ID: MGI:6368825
Gene: Galnt2  Location: Chr8:124231394-124345722 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr8, 72.52 cM, cytoband E2
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:251899
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6NTac
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExons 4 to 6 were floxed. Flp-mediated recombination removed the selection cassette. A constitutive KO allele has been generated after Cre-mediated recombination by crossing chimeras to a Cre-Deleter. See https://www.taconic.com/mouse-model/galnt2-ko-9639 for more information.
