Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: MipCat-Tohm
Name: major intrinsic protein of lens fiber; dominant cataract Tohoku
MGI ID: MGI:2657065
Synonyms: CatTohm
Gene: Mip  Location: Chr10:128225838-128231812 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 76.49 cM, cytoband D1
Strain of Origin:  DDI
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA 12 bp deletion was found to underlie this gain-of-function mutation that arose in the DDI strain. The deletion is in-frame and results in the loss of four amino acids from the second transmembrane domain, affecting cellular localization of the protein. The mutant protein localizes to the intracellular and perinuclear spaces rather than the plasma membrane of lens fiber cells. (J:82971)
Inheritance:    Dominant
