Allele Detail
Symbol: Klra8Cmv1-del
Name: killer cell lectin-like receptor, subfamily A, member 8; cytomegalovirus resistance 1, deletion
MGI ID: MGI:3773165
Synonyms: Klra8KO, L49h-
Gene: Klra8  Location: Chr6:130115226-130129898 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 63.44 cM
Strain of Origin:  BXD8/TyJ
Allele Type:    Not Applicable
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsMapping experiments identified a 23 kb deletion in the Klra cluster in the BXD-8/Ty strain that contained only the Klra8 gene. This deletion correlated with an increased susceptiblity to cytomegalovirus infection. (J:79093)
Inheritance:    Recessive
