Chimeric mice are dystrophic with an inability to walk a straightline and drag their feet (J:87120). Muscle weakness is also apparent in a hanging wire grip test and positional instability in the rotor-rod test (J:87120). Several brain and eye abnormalities are also present (J:87120). Myelination of peripheral nerves is defective and the chimeric mouse is a model for Fukuyama-type congenital muscular dystrophy, OMIM ID:253800 (J:122554).
