Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: Tomtm1Btlr
Name: transmembrane O-methyltransferase; mutation 1, Bruce Beutler
MGI ID: MGI:3800574
Synonyms: add
Gene: Tomt  Location: Chr7:101898373-101903785 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 54.68 cM
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Project Collection: Beutler Mutagenetix
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsMice with the mutant phenotype were discovered among G3 progeny of an ENU-mutagenized male mouse. The mutation was mapped to Chromosome 7 and identified as a G-to-T transversion in the second of the 4 exons of this gene, resulting in substitution of arginine for leucine at position 48 of the 258-amino acid protein. (J:86521, J:137493)
Inheritance:    Recessive
