Vacuolar-sorting protein SNF8 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SNF8 gene.[1][2][3]

Model organisms

Model organisms have been used in the study of SNF8 function. A conditional knockout mouse line, called Snf8tm1a(EUCOMM)Wtsi[8][9] was generated as part of the International Knockout Mouse Consortium program — a high-throughput mutagenesis project to generate and distribute animal models of disease to interested scientists.[10][11][12]

Male and female animals underwent a standardized phenotypic screen to determine the effects of deletion.[6][13] Twenty five tests were carried out on mutant mice and two significant abnormalities were observed.[6] No homozygous mutant embryos were identified during gestation, and therefore none survived until weaning. The remaining tests were carried out on heterozygous mutant adult mice; no additional significant abnormalities were observed in these animals.[6]
