Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: LeprDb-Btlr
Name: leptin receptor; diabetes Bruce Beutler
MGI ID: MGI:3784988
Synonyms: Business class, Leprm1Btlr
Gene: Lepr  Location: Chr4:101717404-101815352 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr4, 46.96 cM
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Project Collection: Beutler Mutagenetix
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsThe mutation corresponds to a T-to-A transversion at nucleotide position 999 of the gene, in the seventh of 18 exons. It causes replacement of codon 333, specifying tryptophan, by a stop codon (W333Ter), which results in truncation of the protein by 829 amino acids and loss of the C-terminal intracellular signaling domain, the transmembrane domain, and most of the extracellular region including the ligand-binding domain. (J:133632)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
