Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Atp7aMo-Tohm
Name: ATPase, Cu++ transporting, alpha polypeptide; Mottled Tohoku
MGI ID: MGI:3588774
Synonyms: MoTohm
Gene: Atp7a  Location: ChrX:106027276-106124926 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 47.36 cM
Strain of Origin:  mixed
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsA 1440-bp deletion occurred between intron 22 and exon 23. As a result, the donor site of exon 22 and the 4 following bases are retained in the mRNA. This includes a premature stop codon. The resulting mRNA is 500 bases shorter than normal and 91 amino acids are deleted from the protein product. Only two cytosolic amino acid residues past the eighth transmembrane domain are translated. Crossing to mice carrying a wild-type cDNA transgene confirmed the identity of this spontaneous mutation.

This mutation arose spontaneously in an outbred strain at Tohoku University involving three inbred strains: C57BL/6, C3H/He, and AA (J:105797).
