Finding markers for a mouse gene

image

Scenario

The catalase (Cat) gene is present in almost all aerobically respiring organisms, and protects cells from the toxic effects of hydrogen peroxide. It can also promote cell growth.

Exercise

You are working with a mouse model, and want to clone the Cat gene in mouse. Use Ensembl to answer these questions. Are there any markers from UniSTS in this locus (you can use them to help clone the gene)? Do any probesets from the Illumina Mouse WG 6 V1 Microarray platform match up to any of the Catalase exons, so you can study some expression patterns?
