Strain of Origin:  SJL/J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsMice exhibit a spontaneous deletion of 22 bp in a highly conserved region upstream of the gene in a major lens regulatory element. RT-PCR analysis of eye extracts confirmed reduced transcript expression. (J:177496)
Inheritance:    Recessive
