Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: RhoR3
Name: rhodopsin; R3
MGI ID: MGI:4367268
Synonyms: Bemr3, rhodopsin C185R
Gene: Rho  Location: Chr6:115931927-115938829 bp, + strand  Genetic Position: Chr6, 53.72 cM
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsThis mutation, identified in a fundus screen of progeny of an ENU mutagenized male mouse, comprises a T to C transition at nucleotide position 553, in the third of the gene's 5 exons. This results in replacement of cysteine by arginine at amino acid 185 of the protein (C185R), in the extracellular, intradiscal loop E-II between transmembrane domains IV and V. The level of rhodopsin is reduced in the retinas of homozygous and, to a lesser extent, of heterozygous mutant mice. (J:153281)
