Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Endonuclease-mediated (Humanized sequence)
Mutation:    Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsCRISPR/cas9 endonuclease-mediated genome editing is used to insert an amino acid substitution at position 82 altering serine to methionine (S82M - AGT to ATG) . The mutation is designed to partially humanize the mouse Ace2 coding sequence in a region important for binding to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. (J:101977)
