Incidental mutations (data from Mutagenetix , APF )
Mutations in this gene cause abnormal melanocyte structure, resulting in clumping of melanin pigment in hair of nonagouti mice, producing a gray coat color. Some alleles also produce a lethal or neurological phenotype. Normal melanocyte structure and coat phenotype is restored in revertant alleles.
