The comparison of both mutant phenotypes 1995). Morphogenetic mouse mutants in which limb development let us hypothesize that Ft and Os might be allelic. Genes deleted or is affected have proven useful to analyze the molecular mecha- mutated by both mutations would be good candidates to function nisms underlying this process (for a review, see Cohn and Tickle in limb development. 1996). Fused toes (Ft) is a dominant mouse mutation characterized To address the question of allelism of Ft and Os, we have by partial syndactyly of fore limbs and thymic hyperplasia.
