Gene: Rab38ru (Rab38, member of RAS oncogene family, ruby allele) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rab38ru
Name: Rab38, member of RAS oncogene family, ruby allele
RGD ID: 1600311
Description: The Met1Ile mutation in the Rab38 gene abolishes the translation of the gene resulting in a hypopigmentation phenotype
ASSOCIATED WITH abnormal coat/hair pigmentation; abnormal platelet dense granule number; abnormal surfactant secretion; ASSOCIATED WITH Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome; platelet storage pool deficiency
Type: allele  of Rab38  
Previously known as: R; R_mapped; Rab38^[ru]; Rab38ru; red eyed dilution; Ruby; Ruby or red eyed dilution; ruby or red eyed dilution (mapped)
Is Marker For: Strains:   FH   TM/Kyo  
Latest Assembly: mRatBN7.2 - mRatBN7.2 Assembly
