Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Apaf1fog
Name: apoptotic peptidase activating factor 1; forebrain overgrowth
MGI ID: MGI:1888997
Synonyms: Apaf-1fog, fog
Gene: Apaf1  Location: Chr10:90825173-90918632 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 45.47 cM, cytoband C3-D1
Alliance: Apaf1fog page
Strain of Origin:  STOCK Ggt1dwg/J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous (Hypomorph)
Mutation:    Undefined
Mutation detailsDefective mRNA processing appears to be the cause of the markedly reduced normal mRNA levels, protein levels, and activity in fog mutant mice. Complementation testing confirmed that the fog mutant mouse is an allele of Apaf1. (J:71086)
Inheritance:    Recessive

Mutant mice are characterized by forebrain overgrowth and excessive cellular proliferation in the midline cleft. Human APAF1 is a candidate gene for Noonan Syndrome (OMIM 163950), a complex disease with some patients showing facial, cardiac, retinal, and limb abnormalities reminiscent of defective apoptosis (J:49840).
