High impact information on Rsl1

  • Among eight Rsl candidate (Rslcan) genes within the critical genetic interval, the recent duplicates Rslcan-4 and Rslcan-9 both harbor mutations in rsl mice (partial deletion and splice-site inactivation, respectively) [1].
  • Here we compare Rsl1 and Rsl2 with their neighboring genes, tracing a series of duplication, inversion, and gene conversion events that have created subfamilies within the locus [2].

Biological context of Rsl1

  • We recently identified mutations in two genes, Rsl1 and Rsl2, accounting for the rsl phenotype [2].
