Strain of Origin:  P/J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsA C to T transition in exon 15, results in a threonine for isoleucine (T389I) substitution, producing a hypomoph. Measurement of RNA by quantitative real-time PCR, and protein by Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry showed no changes in level compared to wild-type. (J:165341)
