The targeting vector has been generated using C57BL/6J DNA and transfected into TaconicArtemis C57BL/6NTac ES cell line.
Exon 1 contains the translation initiation codon.
Exon 2 has been flanked by loxP sites (size of loxP-flanked region: 1.1 kb).
The constitutive KO allele has been generated after Cre-mediated recombination by crossing chimeras to a Cre-Deleter on a C57BL/6 background.
The constitutive KO line has been derived using C57BL/6NTac animals and the Cre-transgene was removed by segregation.
Deletion of exon 2 should result in loss of function of the Trib1 gene by deleting part of the kinase domain and by generating a frameshift to exon 3.
The corresponding conditional KO allele is available as line 10265.
Datamining and Design performed in 2008.
