This Sufu mutation was identified in a screen of ENU-induced mutations and may be useful in studies of congenital heart disease.
The Jackson Laboratory cannot guarantee that cryorecovery of G1 sperm from the Bench to Bassinet (B2B) collection will be successful or that the anticipated phenotype or genotype will be obtained. The cryorecovery fee for this effort will not be refunded or prorated if the recovery is unsuccessful or is in any way unsatisfactory. Genotyping will be the responsibility of the Purchaser.

This T-to-A point mutation at position 5503 of the Sufu (suppressor of fused homolog (Drosophila)) cDNA was identified in an ENU screen for recessive cardiovascular development phenotypes in Dr. Cecilia Lo's laboratory, NHLBI Cardiovascular Development Consortium (CvDC). It was recovered from G1 sperm and associated with the phenotype described described here. Because G1 sperm were cryopreserved, additional incidental mutations are also segregating in this strain.
Homozygotes demonstrate cardiovascular defects that involve a double outlet right ventricle (DORV), overriding aorta, perimembranous and muscular ventricular septal defect (pmVSD, mVSD), and high take-off coronary arteries. Polydactyly, microcephaly, micrognathia, cleft palate, and dome-shaped heads are also seen.
This ENU-induced mutation was created and maintained on a C57BL/6J genetic background by the NHLBI Cardiovascular Development Consortium (CvDC), Bench to Bassinet Program. A T-to-A single point mutation at position 530 of the cDNA (c.T530A, NM_001025391) was discovered through whole exome, high throughput sequencing. This mutation is predicted to cause a methionine to lysine amino acid substitution at position 177 of the encoded protein (p.M177K).
