Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Oas1bFlv-r
Name: 2'-5' oligoadenylate synthetase 1B; flavivirus resistance
MGI ID: MGI:1857800
Synonyms: Flvr
Gene: Oas1b  Location: Chr5:120950700-120962228 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 60.64 cM, cytoband F
Strain of Origin:  various
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsThis allele confers resistance to flavivirus infection. Susceptible mouse strains produce a protein lacking 30% of the C-terminal region due a nucleotide substitution. The T-to-C transition in resistant strains results in the change of a premature stop codon to an arginine codon at position 253 (p.*253R). (J:77001)
Inheritance:    Dominant

Carrying any Oas1b Mutation:  9 strains or lines available
The majority of mouse strains carry the susceptibility allele. Only the Det, BSVR, BRVR, CASA/RK, CAST/Ei, and PRI carry the resistance allele. The MOLD/Rk strain carried the allele for minor resistance.
