Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: Myo7a4494SB
Name: myosin VIIA; shaker 4494SB
MGI ID: MGI:2155421
Synonyms: Myo7ash1-4R, sh14494SB, sh1OR-4494SB
Gene: Myo7a  Location: Chr7:97700267-97768731 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 53.57 cM
Strain of Origin:  BALB/cRl
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Inversion
Mutation detailsA small 6 nt inversion and substitution of two T nucleotides with a single A resulted in a frameshift and introduction of a stop codon 5 amino acids downstream in the encoded protein. This mutation is predicted to lie in the head domain of the protein. Northern blot analysis indicated that mRNA expression, size, and stability were unaffected. Immunoblot analysis showed that less than 1% of the normal level of the protein was expressed. (J:49926)
Inheritance:    Recessive
