MGI Phenotype PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a knock-out allele show no major defects in skeletal muscle. However, homozygotes for another knock-out allele show partial background-sensitive prenatal lethality, embryonic right ventricular (RV) dilation and dysplasia, hypotrabeculation, and RV cardiomyopathy in surviving adults.

Nature of Mutation
DNA sequencing using the SOLiD technique identified an A to T transversion at position 273 of the Pdlim3 transcript. The mutated nucleotide causes a methionine to leucine substitution at amino acid 60 of the encoded protein. The mutation has been confirmed by DNA sequencing using the Sanger method (Figure 1).
Protein Function and Prediction
The Pdlim3 gene encodes a 316 amino acid protein known as the actinin-associated LIM protein (ALP). ALP localizes to myofiber Z-lines, and may play a role in the organization of actin filament arrays within muscle cells. ALP contains a PDZ domain at amino acids 1-84, and a LIM zinc binding domain at amino acids 244-303 (Uniprot O70209). ALP-deficient mice maintain normal development and structure of skeletal muscle.
The M60L change occurs in the PDZ domain, and is predicted to be possibly damaging by the PolyPhen program.
