Gene: Pax6  Location: Chr2:105499245-105527709 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 55.31 cM
Alliance: Pax6tm2Pgr page
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:65765
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Conditional ready, No functional change)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsInsertion of loxP sequences flanking the exons encoding the amino terminus of the protein, including the initiator methionine and most of the paired domain. A frt-flanked neomycin cassette in intron 6 was removed via Flp-mediated recomination to create the final allele. These insertions had no effect on the normal function of the allele. (J:65765)
