The buttery ruffled fur phenotypic mutant was identified in a predominantly SWR/J background in which the X Chromosome had segments from SJL/J and CAST/EiJ. This recessive mutation has been maintained by sibling intercrossing for many generations.
|Allele Name||buttery rumpled fur|
|Gene Symbol and Name||Elovl3, elongation of very long chain fatty acids (FEN1/Elo2, SUR4/Elo3, yeast)-like 3|
|Strain of Origin||SWR/J|
|Molecular Note||This spontaneous G-to-A transition at chromosome 19 position 46,133,123 bp (GRCm38) eliminates the exon 2 splice acceptor site by changing it from CAG to CAA, which is expected to yield a functional null but this has not been confirmed with transcript or protein analysis.|
