The whirler mouse mutant (wi) does not respond to sound stimuli, and detailed ultrastructural analysis of sensory hair cells in the organ of Corti of the inner ear indicates that the whirler gene encodes a protein involved in the elongation and maintenance of stereocilia in both inner hair cells (IHCs) and outer hair cells (OHCs). BAC-mediated transgene(More)
N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea (ENU) introduces mutations throughout the mouse genome at relatively high efficiency. Successful high-throughput phenotype screens have been reported and alternative screens using sequence-based approaches have been proposed. For the purpose of generating an allelic series in selected genes by a sequence-based approach, we have(More)
Otitis media (OM), inflammation of the middle ear, remains the most common cause of hearing impairment in children. It is also the most common cause of surgery in children in the developed world. There is evidence from studies of the human population and mouse models that there is a significant genetic component predisposing to OM, yet nothing is known(More)
Menkes disease (MNK) lies immediately proximal to pphosphoglycerate kinase (PGK1) in Xq13 in human. Phenotypic similarities between MNK patients and murine mottled (Mo) mutants strongly suggest that both defects are caused by mutations at the same locus. Human MNK cDNA clones and a genomic subclone derived from a 40-kb YAC clone that includes Pgk1 have been(More)
