Gene: Pax6Sey (paired box gene 6, small eye mutation) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pax6Sey
Name: paired box gene 6, small eye mutation
RGD ID: 737688
Description: Genomic DNA analysis from mutants revealed a single base (G) insertion generating a novel 5' donor splice site. Abnormal splicing between this donor site and a non-conforming downstream acceptor site led to an internal 602-bp deletion in the Pax6 mRNA, removing approximately 1/3 of the 3' end of the coding region and part of the 3'-UTR. The mutation results in nose and eye defects in Sprague Dawley (SD) rats.
ASSOCIATED WITH abnormal eye physiology; abnormal nose morphology
Type: allele  of Pax6  
Previously known as: Pax6Sey
