Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Lpcat1rd11
Name: lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase 1; retinal degeneration 11
MGI ID: MGI:2388243
Gene: Lpcat1  Location: Chr13:73467231-73516420 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr13, 39.97 cM
Strain of Origin:  B6.D2/22Ei
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Insertion
Mutation detailsThis spontaneous insertion of a single G residue in exon 3 causes a frame shift predicted to encode an abnormal protein sequence after amino acid 140 and a stop codon after residue 178. RT-PCR of retinal RNA shows a 3 fold decrease in expression level and western blotting fails to detect protein product. (J:163743)
Inheritance:    Recessive
