High impact information on Ush2a

  • A contig spanning the rd3 locus and consisting of 2 YACs and one BAC was generated, and Mush2a was absent from it, confirming its exclusion from the locus [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Ush2a

  • These flanking markers and the mouse ortholog of USH2A (Mush2a) were mapped in the T31 mouse radiation hybrid (RH) panel, with the result that D1MIT292/D1MIT209 and D1MIT510 were 7.9 cR3000 apart ( approximately 800 kb), and Mush2a was > 30 cR3000 proximal to the pair, excluding it from the rd3 locus [1].
