Recessive coat-color mutation in the spiny mouse (Acomys cahirinus)



Recessive coat-color mutation in the spiny mouse (Acomys cahirinus)



Journal of Heredity 74(1): 59-60



An autosomal recessive allele that causes grey coat colour in the adult spiny mouse arose in a breeding colony established in 1968. The mutant adults had the same coat colour as normal juveniles, the spines of the dorsal pelage of grey animals lacking the subapical band of yellow pigment that is found in the adult wild-type animals. The mutation is referred to as grey, and the symbol g has been tentatively assigned to it.
