High impact information on EYCL3

  • The P gene is located on chromosome 15q11.2-q12, which is also the location of a putative eye pigmentation gene (EYCL3) inferred to exist by linkage analysis [1].
  • The gene (DN10 or P) homologous to the pink-eye-dilution gene (p) in mice could be a candidate gene for BEY2 or for HCL3 [2].
  • Brown eye colour (BEY), or total brown iris pigmentation is one of the most common phenotypes of iris colour [2].
