This mutation was generated by by pronuclear injection of a transgene into SWV-Mbpshi fertilized oocytes. Approximately 50-100 copies initially inserted into this locus, but the copy number decreased to 1 or a few during the course of breeding. This decrease of copy number had no effect on the phenotype. Some mice were mated to a B6C female to expand to an F3 generation.
