A spontaneous, autosomal, recessive mouse mutation exhibiting mild scaly skin, progressive scarring alopecia, slightly runted growth, and photophobia arose at The Jackson Laboratory in 1993 in the inbred mouse strain DBA/1LacJ. Because this mutant mouse showed genetic, anatomical, and laboratory similarities to the asebia mutation, crosses were done between(More)
The hair growth cycle is generally recognized to comprise phases of growth (anagen), regression (catagen), and rest (telogen). Whereas, heretofore, the hair shedding function has been assumed to be part of the telogen phase, using a laboratory mouse model and newly developed techniques for quantitative collection and spectroscopic determination of shed(More)
Lambda G28, a mouse genomic clone homologous to the human P3 gene and associated with a CpG island, also hybridizes to human probes for the neighboring GdX gene. The two genes, P3 and GdX (DXS253E and DXS254E), physically linked on the human X chromosome, lie within a similar physical distance on the mouse X chromosome. The CpG island corresponds to that at(More)
The nucleotide (nt) sequence of the entire CpG island in the 5' region of the human glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase-encoding gene (G6PD) and of the corresponding region in mouse was determined. In comparison to the human gene, the 5' region of the mouse G6PD gene has highly reduced G + C and CpG dinucleotide content, but maintains the functional features(More)
