The Japanese Fancy Mouse 1 (JF1) has a characteristic coat color similar to a very old mutant, piebald. The mutation in JF1 and the classic piebald was previously thought to be the same recessive allele in the endothelin B receptor gene (Ednrb) according to the haplotype pattern, which is insufficient for this conclusion. In this study, we identified the same insertion of a retroposon-like element in intron 1 of the Ednrb gene in JF1 as in the classic piebald mutation by PCR. Further, we… CONTINUE READING
