Mutations:    Insertion, Nucleotide substitutions
Mutation detailsNucleotide substitution(s) in exon 4 resulted in the amino acid substitution of arginine for cysteine at position 133 (R133C). This mutation affects the methyl-CpG binding domain. An EGFP was fused in-frame downstream of the coding sequence in exon 4. Cre-mediated recombination removed the floxed neomycin resistance cassette inserted downstream of EGFP. The R133C mutation represents 5% of Rhett Syndrome missense mutations. (J:227401)
