Notes
Mitfmi-ew, eyeless white, recessive. This mutation occurred spontaneously at the University of Kansas. Homozygotes have white coat color. The eyes are undeveloped and eyelids never open. Heterozygotes with various other Mitf mutations have been described (J:30755). The DNA lesion is a deletion of a portion of the Mitf gene, including the basic region (J:21366).
