Targeted Allele Detail
Symbol: Nos3tm1Unc
Name: nitric oxide synthase 3, endothelial cell; targeted mutation 1, University of North Carolina
MGI ID: MGI:1857229
Synonyms: ecNOS-, eNOS-, eNOSKO, NOS3-
Gene: Nos3  Location: Chr5:24569808-24589472 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 11.32 cM
Alliance: Nos3tm1Unc page
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:36559
Parent Cell Line:  E14TG2a (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129P2/OlaHsd
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA 1.2 kb neomycin cassette replaced 129 bp of exon 12 of the gene. This disrupted the calmodulin binding site of the protein and introduced a premature stop codon into the transcripts. Immunohistochemisty of heart and kidney sections from homozygous mutant mice confirmed that no detectable encoded protein was present. (J:36559)
