Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Nek8jck
Name: NIMA (never in mitosis gene a)-related expressed kinase 8; juvenile cystic kidney
MGI ID: MGI:1856919
Synonyms: jck, Nek8-
Gene: Nek8  Location: Chr11:78056932-78067501 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr11, 46.74 cM, cytoband B5
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J Tg 147-9a
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsThe mutation in jck mice has been identified as a double nucleotide substitution (c.1341G>T and c.1343G>T). While c.1341G>T is a silent mutation in the last base of the leucine codon at position 447, the c.133G>T mutation in the second base of evolutionary conserved glycine codon 448 in the C-terminal domain of the protein results in it changing to valine (p.G448V). (J:79896)
Inheritance:    Recessive
