Show the 3 phenotype image(s) involving this allele.

Strain of Origin:  (101 x C3H)F1
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsA single base pair mutation (T to C) in exon 2 replaces Phe with Ser at amino acid position 9 of the protein. The mutant protein shows a concentration dependent decrease in solubility and a loss of secondary structure at near-physiological temperatures. (J:68109)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
