Strain: SD-Bckdkm1Dbsa

Symbol: SD-Bckdkm1Dbsa
Strain: SD-Bckdkm1
Substrain: Dbsa
RGD ID: 39457947
Citation ID: RRID:RGD_39457947
Ontology ID: RS:0004833
Previously known as: frogleg rat
Type: mutant
Source: Spring Valley Laboratories, Inc (Woodbine,MD)
Origin: The frogleg phenotype arose in a breeding colony of Sprague-Dawley rats which had originated with animals purchased from Taconic Farms (Hamilton, NY). The frogleg rats, which require no special husbandry, were bred and maintained at Spring Valley Laboratories, Inc (Woodbine,MD). The complex phenotype seen in the frogleg rat arises from a missense mutation (p.G369E) in the gene Bckdk.
Last Known Status: Unknown
