High impact information on Hps5

  • Unexpectedly, dsu suppressed the ruby eye color of ruby-eye (ru) and ruby-eye-2 (ru-2) mice, to black [1].
  • Although expression patterns and chromosomal localization in the mouse are consistent with involvement of melastatin mutations in the mouse ruby-eye-2 defect, congenic analysis showed genetic segregation of the two loci [2].
  • Thus, the gene order of Ldh-1 and ru-2 on chromosome 7 remains uncertain [3].
