How do I interpret the detail results of my query?

Each report includes a subset of the following fields, depending on the content of the record. See Primer Detail Results if the sequence type is primer. Note: If the provider did not supply a description for an item, Not Specified appears for this field.

Nucleotide Probe/CloneName of the probe or segment.
Sequence typeSequence types are: cDNA, genomic, DNA (construct), mitochondrial, oligo, primer, RNA.
DerivativesNames of probes/clones derived from the currently displayed probe/clone. Each name is linked to the appropriate child record.
Derived fromName of probe/clone that the currently displayed probe/clone is derived from. Each name is linked to the appropriate parent record.
LibraryLibrary to which the probe/clone belongs.
Species of originOrganism from which the probe/clone was derived.
StrainStrain from which the probe/clone was derived.
Sex Sex of the specimen from which the probe/clone was derived.
AgeAge of the specimen from which the probe/clone was derived.
Tissue Tissue of the specimen from which the probe/clone was derived.
Tissue Note If this is a cell line, the description may detail where the cell line was derived from. If this is a tissue, it may detail the cell type or tissue treatment, if any.
Cell lineCell line from which the probe/clone was derived
Region coveredDescription of the molecular segment inserted into the vector.
Vector typeBAC, cosmid, P1, PAC, phage, phagemid, plasmid, YAC.
Insert siteRestriction site used to insert the segment into the vector.
Insert sizeSize of the segment inserted into the vector.
MGI Accession ID Unique ID assigned to the probe/clone record in MGI. The format is MGI:nnnn (nnnn is any number greater than or equal to 1).
Other MGI Accession IDsA comma-separated list of any secondary MGI accession IDs associated with the probe/clone.
Other Accession IDsUnique identifier assigned to the probe/clone by a resource external to the database. For example, in MGI, the RIKEN clone ID is an external accession ID.
NotesProbe-specific information.

Markers (chromosome):
  • Symbol for each marker (linked to MGI marker records) to which this probe/clone hybridizes.
  • If the probe is putatively associated with a marker in the MGI database, PUTATIVE appears in parentheses after the marker symbol.
  • The marker's chromosomal assignment appears in parentheses.
  • The marker's genome coordinates appear after the chromosome in the parentheses.
References: Short-form citations for this probe/clone, each linked to an MGI Reference Detail page.
  • May include notes entered by editors, and, for molecular segments associated with sequence accession numbers, links to GenBank, EMBL, DDBJ, and the MGI Sequence Detail page.
  • If the reference includes sequence, this is also indicated.
  • If polymorphism information is available, it appears in a table with the following column heads:
    Endonuclease, Marker, Allele, Fragments, Strains.

Primer Detail Results

If you selected primer as the Sequence Type on the Molecular Probes and Clones Query Form, the first four fields in the detail report describe the primer set. The remainder of the fields contain the information described in detail report above.

PrimerName of the primer set.
Primer 1 sequenceSequence for the first primer.
Primer 2 sequenceSequence for the second primer.
Product sizeSize of the amplified product.
