Mutation:    Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsA targeting vector containing an FRT flanked neomycin cassette was used to insert an in-frame UGA stop codon in place of the codon (AGA) for arginine (R168X) at position 502 in exon 4. R168X is the most common nonsense mutation associated with Rhett syndrome. Flp-mediated recombination removed the FRT-flanked neo cassette. (J:285039)
