Jackson MRC Human Genetics Unit, Western General Hospital, Crewe Road, Edinburgh EH 2XU, UK Received: 19 December 1997 / Accepted: 14 February 1998 B-w The white-based brown (Tyrp1 ) mutation of the tyrosinase- related protein-1 (Tyrp1) or brown locus arose during a radiation mutagenesis experiment, following exposure of a (101/R1 × C3H/ R1) F male to 600 rad (6Gy) of g-radiation over a period of several weeks (Hunsicker 1969). As the name indicates, there is an absence or reduction in pigment at the base of the hair. The white base is dominant, that is, it is visible when heterozygous with wild-type Tyrp1, although it extends over a larger part of the hair B-w in Tyrp1 homozygotes.
