Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:67779
Parent Cell Line:  R1 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  (129X1/SvJ x 129S1/Sv)F1-Kitl+
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsExon 3 was disrupted by the insertion of a neomycin selection cassette. Transcript was undetected by RT-PCR analysis of brain tissue obtained from homozygous mutant mice. Enzymatic activity assays showed a lack of activity in homozygous mutant mice and levels reduced to 60 to 70% of wild-type in heterozygotes. (J:67779)
