Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6By or C57BL/6N
Allele Type:    Spontaneous
Mutation:    Intragenic deletion
Mutation detailsThe mutation in the rd8 mouse has been identified as a single base deletion of a C (G on forward strand) at coding nucleotide 3481 in the gene. This deletion causes a frame shift and a premature stop codon that truncates the transmembrane and cytoplasmic domain of the protein after amino acid 1207. This mutation has been found to be present in all sublines of C57BL/6N and in C57BL/6ByJ, but not in any C57BL/6J subline. It occurred sometime between transfer of mice from JAX to NIH, in 1951, and from NIH to Donald Bailey, in 1961. (J:85459, J:182353)
Inheritance:    Recessive
