Gene: Tmem67wpk (transmembrane protein 67; wpk mutant) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Tmem67wpk
Name: transmembrane protein 67; wpk mutant
RGD ID: 14995943
Description: A single C to T substitution in exon 12 was identified as the mutated allele in the Wpk rat. This mutation converts a proline to a leucine in the protein products(P394L). This mutation was not present in the parental Wistar strain.
INVOLVED IN head development; ASSOCIATED WITH abnormal blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier function; abnormal cerebrospinal fluid flow; abnormal ciliary body morphology; ASSOCIATED WITH autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease; communicating hydrocephalus; hydrocephalus
Type: allele  of Tmem67  
Previously known as: Tmem67^[wpk]
Is Marker For: Strains:   Wpk   Wpk +/-   Wpk -/-  
Latest Assembly: mRatBN7.2 - mRatBN7.2 Assembly
Position: No map positions available.
