Mouse Strain information
APB ID 1524
Added 05/07/2007
Last Edited 11/05/2014
Strain name: C.Cg-Myd88tm1Aki Tg(CD2-IL5)5C2Ldt/Apb
Strain designation name: C.Cg-Myd88tm1Aki Tg(CD2-IL5)5C2Ldt/Apb
Strain Types Mutant strain
Genetic Details Targeted knockout
Mode of Inheritance Recessive
1.  Affected Gene Name: myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88  
Chromosome 9
Affected Gene Symbol Myd88
Protein expression of altered gene: Nil
Genetic alteration of gene: A neomycin selection cassette replaced a 1.0 kb genomic fragment that contained sequences encoding the C-terminal cytoplasmic domain of the protein. Northern blot analysis confirmed that the encoded mRNA could not be detected in the liver and spleen of homozygous mice.
Location on chromosome (bp): 119245052-119250529 bp, - strand (From VEGA annotation of NCBI Build 37)
