Radiation induced Allele Detail
Symbol: KitlSl-con
Name: kit ligand; steel contrasted
MGI ID: MGI:1856163
Synonyms: Mgf
Gene: Kitl  Location: Chr10:99851492-99936278 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 51.4 cM
Strain of Origin:  (C3H/HeH x 101/H)F1
Allele Type:    Radiation induced
Mutation:    Other
Mutation detailsPulse field gel electrophoresis using cDNA and genomic clones showed that this allele is an undefined rearrangement between 90 and 2.2Mb 5' to Kitl. Northern analysis showed that the mRNA transcript is of normal size but this allele exerts tissue-specific effects on transcript abundance. (J:23593)
Inheritance:    Semidominant

The contrasted mutation was found in a neutron irradiation experiment. Heterozygotes are recognizable soon after birth by dark pigmentation of the genital papilla. The adult coat is slightly lighter than normal. Homozygotes also have dark external genitalia but a markedly diluted coat; they have a mild macrocytic anemia. Males are fertile but females are usually sterile (J:20215).
