Transgenic Allele Detail
Symbol: Wo
Name: wocko
MGI ID: MGI:1861589
Gene: Wo  Location: unknown  Genetic Position: Chr1, Syntenic
Alliance: Wo page
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6J x DBA/2J)F1
Transgene Type:    Transgenic (Inserted expressed sequence)
Mutations:    Insertion, Other
Mutation detailsThe inserted transgenic construct contains a human vasopressin promoter region adjoined to a 1.9 kb fragment of a v-src gene from the Schmidt-Ruppin A strain of RSV. Southern blot analysis indicated that a single copy of the construct integrated into the genome of founder mice. Mapping data indicated that a complex rearrangement involving 6.3 cM of flanking genomic DNA had taken place at the transgene insertion site. The DNA was not deleted nor simply inverted and involved at least 4 breakpoints. (J:62376)
Inheritance:    Dominant

This transgenic neurological mutation disrupts inner ear development. Mutant mice display a dominant behavioral phenotype of circling, hyperactivity, and head-tossing, like waltzer class mutants. Viability of homozygotes is reduced. Both structural and neural components of the inner ear were disrupted due to aberrant development (J:11245).
