Notes
Arose in descendants of irradiated mice. This mutation causes less severe defects than other Cat2 alleles. In heterozygotes, there is a fine granular opacity of the nucleus, surrounded by a less opaque concentric area. In homozygotes, a dense opacity involves the whole lens except the peripheral layer. The phenotype is bilateral and penetrance is complete in both heterozygotes and homozygotes. Homozygotes are viable and fertile (J:6686).
