Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Tyrcm1OR
Name: tyrosinase; albino mottling 1, Oak Ridge
MGI ID: MGI:2153728
Synonyms: cm1OR, Tyrc-1R
Gene: Tyr  Location: Chr7:87427405-87493411 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 49.01 cM
Strain of Origin:  C3H/Rl
Allele Type:    Spontaneous (Hypomorph)
Mutation:    Transposon insertion
Mutation detailsThe mutation is a 5.4kb intracisternal A particle (IAP) element insertion upstream of the promoter. This is a hypomorphic allele; Northern blot analysis and RT-PCR results show that expression is at much lower levels in homozygous than in wild-type mice. (J:38209)
Inheritance:    Recessive
