  2. Resource Description
    "Mice were generated with a targeted disruption in the Akt2 locus by homologous recombination. The targeting vector was designed to insert LoxP sites flanking the sequence containing the coding exons 4 and 5 Mice harboring the targeted allele were identified by Southern blotting and were mated to transgenic mice expressing Cre recombinase. The progeny carrying both the Cre transgene and the targeted allele were mated with wild-type (WT) mice to obtain offspring in which the Cre transgene was segregated away and the targeted allele was excised, as determined by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and Southern blotting, respectively. These mice were mated inter se to produce offspring with homozygous deletions of Akt2."
