Mouse Strain information
APB ID 114
Added 06/02/2006
Last Edited 11/05/2014
Strain name: B6.129-Bcl6tm1Sdt/AnuApb
Nickname: Bcl-6 -/-
Strain designation name: B6.129-Bcl6tm1Sdt/AnuApb
Strain Types Mutant strain
Genetic Details Targeted knockout
Mode of Inheritance Recessive
1.  Affected Gene Name: B-cell leukemia/lymphoma 6  
Chromosome 16
Affected Gene Symbol Bcl-6
Protein expression of altered gene: Nil
Genetic alteration of gene: A genomic fragment containing coding sequences for the zinc finger DNA binding domain was replaced with a neomycin selection cassette. Western blot analysis on spleen cells derived from homozygous mice demonstrated that no detectable protein was produced from this allele.
Location on chromosome (bp): 23965138-23988938 bp, - strand (From VEGA annotation of NCBI Build 37)

Allele Name targeted mutation 1, Louis M Staudt
Allele Symbol Bcl6tm1Sdt
MGI Allele Accession ID MGI:2158439
Mutant Construction Technique None
Phenotype Homozygous State Homozygous null mutants develop myocarditis and pulmonary vasculitis, show impaired germinal center formation in the spleen, and display T helper 2 cell hyperimmune responsiveness. Mice frequently die before reaching maturation.
