Spontaneous Allele Detail
Symbol: Cd4del
Name: CD4 antigen; deletion
MGI ID: MGI:3664575
Gene: Cd4  Location: Chr6:124864692-124888221 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 59.17 cM
Strain of Origin:  C57BR/cdJ
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsSequence analysis revealed that one thymine was substituted for the 14 bp at the junction between exon VIII and intron VIII. This results in the skipping of exon 8 in the expressed transcript, resulting in a deletion of the transmembrane domain and C-terminus of the encoded protein. Soluble Cd4 is detectable in the sera of mutant mice. (J:46692)
