The mouse strain DBA/2J develops glaucoma associated with iris stromal atrophy and iris pigment dispersion phneotypes. Genetic studies defined two separate loci that contribute to the overall phenotype in the DBA/2J mouse, ipd and isa. Either mutation in a homozygous state contributes to glaucoma, while mice homozygous for both mutations develop an earlier onset and more severe iris disease.
