Gene: Ugt1a1j (UDP glucuronosyltransferase family 1 member A1, jaundice mutant) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ugt1a1j
Name: UDP glucuronosyltransferase family 1 member A1, jaundice mutant
RGD ID: 13432064
Description: A single guanosine (G) base deletion within the UGT1A1 gene causes the absence of hepatic UDP-glucuronosyltransferase (UDPGT) activity toward bilirubin in a spontaneous mutant strain of Wistar rats.
ASSOCIATED WITH abnormal renal water reabsorption; decreased mean corpuscular volume; decreased urine osmolality; ASSOCIATED WITH bilirubin metabolic disorder; Jaundice; Polyuria
Type: allele  of Ugt1a1
