|Gene Name||a disintegrin-like and metallopeptidase (reprolysin type) with thrombospondin type 1 motif, 20|
|Chromosomal Location||94,270,163-94,465,418 bp (-)|
|MGI Phenotype||Homozygous mutants have a white belt across the back in the midtrunk region and a white belly patch that coalesces to form a white belt.|
|Amino Acid Change|
|Institutional Source||Beutler Lab|
Ensembl: ENSMUSP00000036330 (fasta)
|Gene Model||not available|
|Phenotypic Category||pigmentation, skin/coat/nails|
|Alleles Listed at MGI|
|Mode of Inheritance||Autosomal Recessive|
|Last Updated||2016-05-13 3:09 PM|
Homozygous whitebelly mice exhibit a white spot on the belly. The size of the belly spot in whitebelly mice is smaller than the spot observed in splotch2 animals and never extends to form a belt.
|Nature of Mutation|
Whitebelly was found to be allelic with splotch2, an ENU induced allele of the Adamts20 gene, in which a mutation responsible for the classical belted phenotype was identified (1).
Please see the record for splotch2 for more information about Adamts20.
