Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: AregMcub
Name: amphiregulin; modifier of curly bare
MGI ID: MGI:2653137
Gene: Areg  Location: Chr5:91287458-91296291 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 44.78 cM
Strain of Origin:  V/LeJ
Allele Type:    Spontaneous (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsA T to G mutation occured in the G-GT splice donor site of exon 1 disrupting the donor site and resulting in the use of an alternative downstream splice site. The alternative splice site adds 22 nucleotides to the sequence resulting in a frame-shift and introducing a premature stop codon. Mcub is dominant modifier allele that causes a wavy coat in mice homozygous for the cub mutation. (J:211269)
Inheritance:    Dominant
