Show the 3 phenotype image(s) involving this allele.

Strain of Origin:  (129S4/SvJae x C57BL/6J)F1
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsA missense mutation changes amino acid 307, isoleucine (ATC), to asparagine (AAC). Ile-307 is located in the 7th transmembrane region of RHO and is conserved across species, including human, primate, cat, dog, and rat. (J:159523)
Inheritance:    Dominant
