Figure 3. Mutations identified in LH
affected with canine multifocal retinopathy 3 (cmr3). A
C1388del/Pro463fs mutation (A,
boxed) and linked
G1466T/Gly489Val nucleotide substitution (B, boxed) were
identified in canine bestrophin 1 (cBEST1)
exon 10 of cmr3-affected
Lapponian herder (LH). Wild-type sequence and resulting amino acids are
identified on top (codons are separated by dotted lines), while the
mutations and resulting amino acid changes are noted on the bottom.
Note that the Gly489Val substitution leads to a stop codon within the
Pro463fs altered reading
frame. The carrier sequence in the middle is
heterozygous for both changes. WT=wild type, C=carrier, A=cmr3
affected. C: Conservation of
the nucleotide sequence between species.
D: Comparison of partial
bestrophin exon 10, amino acid 436 to 507
between different species demonstrates the conservation of identified
variants. Positions 438, 440, 463, 473, 489, and 505 are highlighted in
red. Dog=Canis familiaris, Cow=Bos taurus, Pig=Sus
scrofa, Human=Homo sapiens, Chimp=Pan troglodytes,
Macaca=Macaca fascicularis. “.”=position identical to Dog.
