Gene: Wwoxlde (WW domain-containing oxidoreductase; lde mutant) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Wwoxlde
Name: WW domain-containing oxidoreductase; lde mutant
RGD ID: 150429961
Description: This spontaneous lethal dwarfism with epilepsy (LDE) allele carries a 13-bp deletion in exon 9 of rat Wwox gene . This mutation causes a frame shift, resulting in aberrant amino acid sequences at the C-terminal.
ASSOCIATED WITH abnormal gonadotroph morphology; abnormal Leydig cell morphology; audiogenic seizures; ASSOCIATED WITH Dwarfism; epilepsy; Gait Ataxia
Type: allele  of Wwox  
Previously known as: Wwox^[lde]
Is Marker For: Strains:   WIC-Wwoxlde/Fta  
Latest Assembly: mRatBN7.2 - mRatBN7.2 Assembly
Position: No map positions available.
