Mutation detailsA PGK-neomycin resistance cassette replaced introns 2-7 including the start codon. Northern blot analysis using a full length rat cDNA probe did not detect intact mRNA in any tissues from homozygous mutant mice. Western blot analysis did not detect protein in spleen mitochondria from homozygous mutant mice. (J:75196)
