Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: Gdf5Rgsc451
Name: growth differentiation factor 5; RIKEN Genomic Sciences Center (GSC), 451
MGI ID: MGI:3699319
Synonyms: M100451
Gene: Gdf5  Location: Chr2:155782943-155787204 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr2, 77.26 cM
Alliance: Gdf5Rgsc451 page
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6JJcl
Project Collection: RIKEN GSC ENU Project
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU) (Dominant negative)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsA T-to-A transversion at nucleotide position 1536, in exon 2, results in substitution of arginine for tryptophan at amino acid position 480 (W408R) in a highly conserved region of the active signaling domain of the growth differentiation factor 5 protein. The mutant protein is secreted and dimerizes normally, but it inhibits the function of the wild-type protein in a dominant negative fashion. (J:125122)
Inheritance:    Semidominant
