Description
Ift88 (intraflagellar transport 88) encodes one of several proteins that are required for the formation and maintenance of flagella and cilia. They play a critical role in the positive and negative transcriptional activities of Gli proteins, effectors of Hedgehog signaling during development.

This recessive hypomorphic allele of Ift88 involves a point mutation that creates an in-frame transcriptional skip of exon 16. This results in a deletion of 29 amino acids from the protein that encode a portion of a tetratricopeptide repeat. A normal transcript is detected at very low levels and shortened cilia are detected in ventral node cells.

Homozygous mutants are embryonic lethal by E12.5 and have low penetrance neural tube closure defects, craniofacial defects, inverted heart looping, polydactyly (6-9 digits) in all four limbs, and delayed bone development. Heterozygotes are viable and fertile.

Development
Progeny of ENU-treated C57BL/6 males were screened at E 9.5 for embryonic patterning mutations. This hypomorphic "flexo" allele involves a T to C mutation in the second nucleotide of intron 16 that results in the transcriptional/translational "skip" of exon 16. This line was backcrossed to C3H/HeNCrl for many generations by the donating lab.

Allele Name flexo
Allele Type Chemically induced (ENU) (Hypomorph)
Common Name(s) Ift88flexo; Ift88hypo; Ift88pol; fxo; polarisfxo;
Mutation Made By Lee Niswander,   University of Colorado, Denver
Strain of OriginC57BL/6J
Gene Symbol and Name Ift88, intraflagellar transport 88
Chromosome 14
Gene Common Name(s) AW552028; D13S1056E; DAF19; Oak Ridge polycystic kidneys; TG737; TTC10; Tg737Rpw; TgN737Rpw; Ttc10; expressed sequence AW552028; fxo; hTg737; orpk; polaris; tetratricopeptide repeat domain 10; transgene insert site 737, insertional mutation, polycystic kidney disease;
General Note This allele is hypomorphic. The mutation causes abnormal embryonic morphology at mid-gestation (~E9.5). Homozygous mutant embryos had a weak neural phenotype: the floor plate was absent at most levels in the neural tube, whereas markers of V3 interneurons and motor neurons were expressed. Double heterozygous fxo/Ttc10tm1Rpw embryos die at E12.5-13.5 with morphology similar to that of fxo homozygotes.
Molecular Note This is a recessive ENU mutation identified in a screen for morphological abnormalities appearing at E9.5. Exon 16 of the gene has been deleted resulting in an "in frame" deletion of 29 amino acids. This results in the loss of 1 out of 10 tetratricopeptide repeats. This is a hypomorphic allele.

The Jackson Laboratory's Genotype Promise

The Jackson Laboratory has rigorous genetic quality control and mutant gene genotyping programs to ensure the genetic background of JAX® Mice strains as well as the genotypes of strains with identified molecular mutations. JAX® Mice strains are only made available to researchers after meeting our standards. However, the phenotype of each strain may not be fully characterized and/or captured in the strain data sheets. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a strain's phenotype will meet all expectations. To ensure that JAX® Mice will meet the needs of individual research projects or when requesting a strain that is new to your research, we suggest ordering and performing tests on a small number of mice to determine suitability for your particular project.
