Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Cacna1fnob2
Name: calcium channel, voltage-dependent, alpha 1F subunit; no b wave 2
MGI ID: MGI:3605845
Synonyms: Cav1.4nob2, nob2
Gene: Cacna1f  Location: ChrX:7607083-7635196 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: ChrX, 3.42 cM
Strain of Origin:  AXB6/PgnJ
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Transposon insertion
Mutation detailsSequence analysis identifies this allele as an insertion of a transposable element in exon 2. The out-of-frame insertion produces a stop codon after synthesis of 32 amino acids. Immunofluorescent staining using an antibody directed to the C terminal of the subunit protein indicates that it is not expressed in the inner or outer plexiform layers of the retina. (J:123811)
Inheritance:    Recessive
