Genetic mapping of a mouse ocular malformation locus, tcm, to chromosome 4

Genetic mapping of a mouse ocular malformation locus, tcm, to chromosome 4 The Tcm mutation in the mouse is an autosomal dominant ocular malformation manifesting as microphthalmia, iris dysplasia, cataract, and coloboma. As a first step to cloning the Tcm gene, we report the localization of the Tcm mutation with respect to known microsatellite markers. Backcross progeny carrying the Tcm mutation were produced by mating Tcm/+ heterozygous mice to normal C57BL/6 partners. Genomic DNA from each mouse was subjected to PCR analysis to identify simple sequence length polymorphisms. Our results locate Tcm to Chr 4 and suggest candidate genes responsible for the Tcm phenotype. Finally, ocular histopathology was done in 3-week-old animals to define the extent of the malformation.
