Mouse Strain information
APB ID 1514
Added 04/07/2007
Last Edited 11/05/2014
Strain name: B6.129S4-Nos3tm1Plh/AnuApb
Nickname: eNOS -/-
Strain designation name: B6.129S4-Nos3tm1Plh/AnuApb
Strain Types Mutant strain
Genetic Details Targeted knockout
ES Cell-Line Used J1
Mode of Inheritance Recessive
1.  Affected Gene Name: nitric oxide synthase 3, endothelial cell  
Chromosome 5
Affected Gene Symbol Nos3
Protein expression of altered gene: Nil
Genetic alteration of gene: A neomycin cassette replaced 3 exons that encode the NADPH ribose and adenine binding sites of the protein (amino acids 1010 - 1144). Western blots of protein extracts of brain, heart, lung, and aorta/vena cava from homozygous mutant mice showed no detectable encoded protein.
Location on chromosome (bp): 23870628-23890292 bp, + strand (From VEGA annotation of NCBI Build 37)
