Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: Rnf212repro57
Name: ring finger protein 212; reproductive mutant 10, JAX Reproductive Mutagenesis Program
MGI ID: MGI:3708256
Gene: Rnf212  Location: Chr5:108877156-108922848 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr5, 53.24 cM
Alliance: Rnf212repro57 page
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU) (Null/knockout)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsENU induced a C-to-T transversion at nucleotide 265 (at 108757107 bp in Chr5, GRCm38.p2) creating a premature stop codon in the coiled-coil domain of the gene. Western blot analysis confirmed the absence of protein expression in testes from homozygous mice. (J:219664)
Inheritance:    Recessive

Males are infertile: very low testis weight, low seminal vesicle weight, no epididymal sperm are recovered. Histological analysis shows arrest of spermatogenesis during late pachytene stage of meiotic prophase, some germ cells appear apoptotic.
