In the mouse, the agouti gene encodes a 131-amino acid was performed with the genomic DNAs from the ACI rat. Ap- paracrine signaling molecule whose pulsatile expression produces proximately 1.8-kb and 3.0-kb fragments were obtained from in- a characteristic pattern of banded pigment in individual hairs trons 2 and 3, respectively. However, no fragment was obtained (Bultman et al. 1992; Miller et al. 1993; Michaud et al. 1994). from intron 1. We determined the nucleotide sequences of the Gain-of-function mutation of mouse agouti, such as lethal-yellow splice donor and acceptor sites of Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
