Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: GarsNmf249
Name: glycyl-tRNA synthetase; neuroscience mutagenesis facility, 249
MGI ID: MGI:3513831
Synonyms: GarsP234KY, GarsP278KY, Nmf249
Gene: Gars  Location: Chr6:55038007-55079500 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 27.29 cM
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutations:    Insertion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsSequence analysis revealed that a CC pair in the open reading frame was changed to AAATA. This nucleotide substitution results in the proline at codon 278 to be replaced with a tyrosine and lysine residue without affecting the rest of the open reading frame. This highly conserved proline residue is near the second catalytic domain. Expression of transcript from this allele does not appear to be affected by this mutation. It is predicted to be a gain-of-function mutation. (J:112221)
Inheritance:    Dominant
