Mutation detailsThis mutation arose spontaneously in or around 1991 in the C57BL/6 colony of Dr. Alan Bradley. It has been used in linkage studies based on the location of the tyrosinase gene on Chr 7, and its phenotype is complemented by a tyrosinase mini-gene. Sequence analysis of exon 1 identified the same G-to-T transversion at nucleotide position 291 (G291T), resulting in replacement of arginine by leucine at amino acid position 77, that is present in the albino 2 Jackson allele. It reverts at a very low frequency (there were two incidences in the original colony between 1992 and 1995), resulting in black pups in otherwise albino litters. (J:115975, J:115976)
