Name: activating transcription factor 6; targeted mutation 1.1, Randal J Kaufman
MGI ID: MGI:3723526
Synonyms: Atf6alpha-
Gene: Atf6  Location: Chr1:170532243-170695340 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr1, 76.96 cM
Alliance: Atf6tm1.1Rjk page
Germline Transmission:  Earliest citation of germline transmission: J:124971
Parent Cell Line:  Not Specified (ES Cell)
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6
Allele Type:    Targeted (Null/knockout)
Mutations:    Insertion, Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsExon 4 was deleted by Cre-mediated recombination to create a truncated protein product of 72 amino acids that lacks any functional elements of the protein. This allele also contains an FRT flanked neo cassette upstream of the deleted exon 4. The absence of protein was confirmed by western blot analysis on mouse embryonic fibroblast cells. Removal of the neo cassette has no effect on the phenotype. (J:124971)
