Strain Name: blue nile (bln) / Allele: rw646

Allele rw646
Strain Name blue nile (bln)
Type Mutant
Genotype blnrw646/rw646
Affected Gene thoc2
Origin and Depositor RIKEN CBS (Hitoshi Okamoto)
Link to ZFIN ZDB-GENO-071206-5    
Axonal growth of the posterior trigeminal motoneurons within the second branchial arch (BA2) is impaired.
Islet-1-GFP-positive neurons are ectopically induced in the dorsolateral part of r4 to r6 in the hindbrain and in the epibranchial region in BA2.
The axons of secondary motoneurons show abnormal trajectory.
