Chemically induced Allele Detail
Symbol: Myo7apolka
Name: myosin VIIA; polka
MGI ID: MGI:3708382
Gene: Myo7a  Location: Chr7:97700267-97768731 bp, - strand  Genetic Position: Chr7, 53.57 cM
Alliance: Myo7apolka page
Strain of Origin:  C57BL/6J
Allele Type:    Chemically induced (ENU)
Mutation:    Single point mutation
Mutation detailsThis phenotypic mutant was identified in an ENU mutagenesis screen and did not complement Myo7a. The mutation is a G to A transition at position 5472+5 (reference sequence NM_008663), the fifth position in intron 42. As a result, a cryptic splice site in intron 42 is used resulting in a 49bp insertion between exon 42 and exon 43 and a predicted premature truncation after the first 56 amino acids of the FERM2 domain. This mutation is uniquely present in all mice homozygous for this allele. (J:157102)
Inheritance:    Recessive
