Molecular Image Detail
Caption Generation of the Gdf11tm2.1Sjl and Gdf11tm2.2Sjl alleles. (A) Representation of targeting strategy. The 3 exons are shown as boxes with coding sequences shaded black and the 3'UTR open. The targeting construct is represented by a thick line which contains loxP sequences with EcoRI restriction sites inserted into the second XbaI site in exon 1 and flanking a neo gene inserted into the EcoRI site downstream of the 3'UTR. Cre-mediated recombination of the loxP sites flanking the neo gene results in a Gdf11tm2.1Sjl (Gdf11flox) allele. Recombination of the Gdf11tm2.1Sjl (Gdf11 flox allele) allele generates the Gdf11tm2.2Sjl (Gdf11 delta2-3 allele) allele. Oligonucleotide primers used for distinguishing alleles are labeled a, b, and c.
