Gene trapped Allele Detail
Symbol: Ltbp4Gt(U3Cre)1Vmel
Name: latent transforming growth factor beta binding protein 4; gene trap 1, Harald von Melchner
MGI ID: MGI:2388061

Gene: Ltbp4  Location: Chr7:27004561-27037117 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 15.87 cM
Alliance: Ltbp4Gt(U3Cre)1Vmel page
Mutant Cell Line:  3C7
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:85162
Parent Cell Line:  D3 (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  129S2/SvPas
Allele Type:    Gene trapped (Null/knockout, Reporter)
Mutation:    Insertion of gene trap vector     Vector Type: gene trap
Mutation detailsA retroviral gene trap vector, containing cre recombinase and U3 sequences, integrated into intron 5 in a reverse transcriptional orientation. A 98% reduction in mRNA levels was identified in homozygous mutant mice by Northern blot analysis. Western blot analysis results were correlative. The insertion of the vector is thought to interfere with the splicing of this gene. (J:47007, J:78819)
