Strain information
Strain ID MT1091
Strain Name LWS^+2a+5b
Strain Type Mutants
Symbol +2a+5b
Characteristics Mutations were induced by the CRISPR/Cas9 method on the long wavelength sensitive opsin (LWS) genes. The LWSa gene has 4-base deletion and 6-base insertion, and the LWSb gene has 5-base insertion. The mutant fish is insensitive to red light and does not show optomotor response at λ > 740 nm. No phenotypic difference between alleles. Background of this mutant is ci.
