Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsThe mutation in little mice is a A-to-G transition in codon 60 that alters this residue from a aspartate to a glycine in the encoded protein (p.D60G). Reduced levels of mRNA were noted in total RNA derived from pituitary of homozygous mice, and in vitro assays demonstrated that no functional protein is made from this allele. (J:12846, J:13404)
Inheritance:    Recessive
