Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Ap3b1pe-8J
Name: adaptor-related protein complex 3, beta 1 subunit; pearl 8 Jackson
MGI ID: MGI:1857676
Gene: Ap3b1  Location: Chr13:94495468-94702825 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr13, 49.22 cM
Strain of Origin:  DBA/2J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe molecular lesion responsible for the phenotype in pe8J mice consists of a 107-bp deletion in the Ap3b1 gene that alters the reading frame and produces a premature termination site. This results in the addition of 12 novel amino acids followed by a truncation eliminating 233 amino acids from the carboxy terminus. (J:52879, J:65643)
Inheritance:    Recessive
