Strain of Origin:  various
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutations:    Single point mutation, Viral insertion
Mutation detailsTwo mutations have been identified in rd1 mice. A murine leukimia virus (Xmv-28) insertion in reverse orientation in intron 1 is found in all mouse strains with the rd1 phenotype. Further, a nonsense mutation (C-to-A transversion) in codon 347 that results in a truncation eliminating more than half of the predicted encoded protein, including the catalytic domain, has been identified in all rd1 strains of mice. A specific degradation of mutant transcript during or after pre-mRNA splicing is suggested. (J:4366, J:11513, J:51361)
Inheritance:    Recessive
