Mutation
description
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
 
Mutation detailsThis phenotypic mutation was identified in a screen of the progeny of ENU treated male mice for serum cholesterol elevation in response to a high fat, high cholesterol diet. It is a G to A transition at nucleotide 2096 of the mouse cDNA sequence, in a region encoded by exon 14, resulting in replacement of a highly conserved cysteine by tyrosine at amino acid 699 (C699Y; count includes 21-aa signal peptide), which is predicted to cause a folding defect and failure of the protein to transit from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi system. (J:140060)
Inheritance:    Semidominant

Notes
Schmidt and Kostner (Atherosclerosis 148(2):431-432, 1999) identified the same mutation in an Austrian patient with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH): a G-to-A transition at nucleotide 2093 of the human LDLR coding sequence, resulting in replacement of cysteine with tyrosine at amino acid 677 (count does not include 21-aa signal peptide).
