This document answers the following questions about the allele summary report:
The Phenotypic Alleles Query Results -- Summary appears either when a query on the Phenotypes, Alleles, and Disease Models Query Form returns any alleles or when you select All alleles or specific allele types on a gene/marker detail report (see Alleles and Phenotypes for more information).Top
A search for alleles results in a summary listing of any "hits" with links to detail records. The You searched for... box at the top of the Phenotypic Alleles Query Results summary reiterates the search parameters that produced the report and contains items such as:
When you access the allele summary from a gene/marker detail report, the marker symbol, name and, MGI identifier appear in a box at the top of the page.
You'll also find a line of text near the top that reports the number of unique alleles matching your query, and, in parentheses, the number of genes or markers represented by those alleles. For example, if a query returns three different alleles of the same marker, this line would read
3 matching Alleles (1 Gene/Marker represented)
Table columns summarize information about the alleles matching your query. Your sort option (from the query form) determines the presentation order. The results appear in some or all of the following fields (depending on your query form choices).
Gene; Allele Name
|Official symbol for the allele, linked to its Phenotypic Allele Detail Report.|
Name for the allele.
If a camera icon appears, images are associated with the allele. Click the icon to view any associated image(s).
|Chr||Chromosome of the marker that the allele is associated with.|
|Synonyms||Any synonyms (unofficial symbols and names) for the allele.|
|Category||Specific allele type (e.g., knockout, targeted, gene trapped). Cell line (in parentheses) indicates that there is no information about the creation of a mouse line for the allele. Chimera (in parentheses) means that MGI has information only about the chimeric mouse.|
|High level terms from the Mammalian Phenotype (MP) Ontology annotated to the allele. See the Mammalian Phenotype Browser. These high level terms are also found in the Phenotype Selection List pop-up (when you click Anatomical Systems Affected by Phenotypes on the Phenotypes, Alleles, and Disease Models Query Form). Phenotypes that are only annotated to complex genotypes—those involving more than one genome feature—are not listed in this summary but can be found in the Phenotypic Allele Detail Report.|
|Human Disease Models||Human disease terms and OMIM IDs annotated to the allele. Diseases that are only annotated to complex genotypes—those involving more than one genome feature—are not listed in this summary but can be found in the Phenotypic Allele Detail Report. See the Human Disease Vocabulary Browser.|
The vocabulary is annotated at the genotype level. If an allele either does not yet have a genotype or has a genotype with no annotations, the Abnormal Phenotypes Reported in these Systems and Human Disease Models fields are blank. Also, phenotypes and human diseases that are only annotated to complex genotypes—those involving more than one genome feature—are not displayed in this summary but can be found in the Phenotypic Allele Detail Report.
