Mouse Strain information
APB ID 2010
Added 17/09/2007
Last Edited 11/05/2014
Strain name: B6;129P2-Stat3tm1Aki/Apb
Nickname: Stat3 heterozygous knockout
Strain designation name: B6;129P2-Stat3tm1Aki
Strain Types Mutant strain
Genetic Details Targeted knockout
ES Cell-Line Used E14-1
Mode of Inheritance Recessive
1.  Affected Gene Name: Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3  
Chromosome 11
Affected Gene Symbol Stat3
Protein expression of altered gene: Nil
Genetic alteration of gene: Exons 20, 21, and 22 are replaced with the pMC1-neo gene (Stratagene). This deletion causes a loss of Src homology 2 domain and tyrosine residue, which are essential for activation of STAT proteins.
Location on chromosome (bp): 100746412-100800854 bp, - strand (From VEGA annotation of NCBI Build 37)
