Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsNucleotide sequence analysis of mutant complementary DNAs revealed a G-to-A transition (coding nucleotide 2368 in NM_021099) resulting in a aspartic acid to asparagine mutation at codson 790 (p.D790N). Kit receptor tyrosine kinase activity is affected but not c-kit encoded proteins. (J:10187, J:10528)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
