Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:37394
Parent Cell Line:  AB1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S7/SvEvBrd-Hprt1+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsInsertion of a neomycin resistance cassette into exon 4. The authors predict that the targeted allele would encode a truncated non-functional protein that will not bind LDL, and that lacks a membrane spanning segment. Immunoblot analysis of liver membranes detected a truncated protein in homozygous mutant animals. (J:37394)
