Radiation induced Allele Detail
Symbol: MipHfi
Name: major intrinsic protein of lens fiber; hydropic fibers
MGI ID: MGI:1856608
Synonyms: 538
Gene: Mip  Location: Chr10:128225838-128231812 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 76.49 cM, cytoband D1
Strain of Origin:  (101 x C3H)F1
Allele Type:    Radiation induced
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA 76 bp deletion that removes 17 bp from the 3' end of exon 2 and 59 bp of intron 2. In the encoded mRNA, 165 bp of coding sequence is removed resulting from exon 2 being skipped during the splicing process. By immunoblot analysis on lens cell memebrane preparations, a smaller mutant protein was detected in homozygous mutant mice, although at lower levels that the wild-type protein. (J:70225)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
