Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Cep290rd16
Name: centrosomal protein 290; retinal degeneration 16
MGI ID: MGI:3624136
Synonyms: rd16
Gene: Cep290  Location: Chr10:100323420-100410702 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr10, 51.48 cM
Strain of Origin:  BXD24/TyJ
Allele Type:    Spontaneous (Hypomorph)
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe mutation is a deletion of exons 35 to 39 of the gene. The expressed transcript contains an in-frame deletion of 897 bp, corresponding to amino acids 1599-1897 of the encoded protein, which overlaps with the region of human CEP290 critical for microtubule binding. The truncated protein is detectable in retinal extracts derived from homozygous mice. (J:108467, J:204004)
