Strain of Origin:  Not Specified
Allele Type:    Radiation induced
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsA single T insertion at base pair 622 causes a frame shift mutation at amino acid residue 207 truncating the C-terminus of the protein. This eliminates residues required for ligand interaction. Production of truncated protein was demonstrated immunologically. The hair-loss phenotype could be rescued using a Sfn containing transgene. (J:101891)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
