Severe phenotype in mice with termination mutation in exon 2 of cystic fibrosis gene

Academic Article


  • Mice with a termination codon mutation in exon 2 of the cystic fibrosis (CF) gene were generated using homologous recombination in embryonic stem cells. Animals homozygous for the mutant allele display a severe intestinal phenotype similar to that previously reported for CF mutant mice. The null nature of this allele was demonstrated by the absence of detectable wild-type mRNA, by the absence of detectable CFTR in the serous gland collecting ducts of salivary tissues, and by the lack of cAMP-mediated short-circuit current responses in colonic epithelium of mutant animals. © 1995 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
