Radiation induced Allele Detail
Symbol: Crygenz
Name: crystallin, gamma E; dominant cataract 2, nuclear and zonular opacity
MGI ID: MGI:1855995
Synonyms: Cat2nz, CrygeCat2-nz, Nzc
Gene: Cryge  Location: Chr1:65048554-65051149 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr1, 32.8 cM
Strain of Origin:  (101 x C3H)F1
Allele Type:    Radiation induced
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA deletion of a T at position 89 in the encoded mRNA leads to a change in the open reading frame. The mutated sequence encodes a novel peptide of 125 amino acids, as detected in Western blotting of lens extracts derived from mutant mice. (J:66541)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
