Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: CrygeElo
Name: crystallin, gamma E; eye lens obsolescence
MGI ID: MGI:1857599
Synonyms: CrygeCat2-Elo, ELO
Gene: Cryge  Location: Chr1:65048554-65051149 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr1, 32.8 cM
Strain of Origin:  (C57BL/6JNga x Japanese fancy mouse (Oca2p))F4
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA single base (G) deletion at nucleotide position 403 (codon 135) in the fourth ""Greek key"" motif of the Cryge gene product, causes a frameshift mutation that can translate for another 11 amino acids before prematurely terminating (codon 146). The truncated peptide lacking the fourth ""Greek key"" probably leads to misfolding of the crystallin gene product and may act as a dominant negative. (J:2144)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
