rim2 (recombination-induced mutation 2) is a new allele of pearl and a mouse model of human Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS): genetic and physical mapping

rim2 (recombination-induced mutation 2) is a new allele of pearl and a mouse model of human... A mouse mutation, rim2, is one of a series of spontaneous mutations that arose from the intra-MHC recombinants between Japanese wild mouse-derived wm7 and laboratory MHC haplotypes. This mutation is single recessive and characterized by diluted coat color and hypo-pigmentation of the eyes. We mapped the rim2 gene close to an old coat color mutation, pearl (pe), on Chromosome (Chr) 13 by the high-density linkage analysis. The pearl mutant is known to have abnormalities similar to Hermansky-Pudlak syndrome (HPS), a human hemorrhagic disorder, characterized by albinism and storage pool deficiency (SPD) of dense granules in platelets. A mating cross of C57BL10/Slc-rim2/rim2 and C57BL/6J-pelpe showed no complementation of coat color. Additionally, characteristics similar to SPD were also observed in rim2. Thus, rim2 appeared to be a new allele of the pe locus and serves as a mouse model for human HPS. We have made a YAC contig covering the rim2/pe locus toward positional cloning of the causative gene. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
