Nomenclature for identified pigmentation genes in the mouse

More than 90 different loci influence pigmentation in the mouse. During the past few years, an increasing number of genes have been identified, and assigned to the corresponding coat color loci and pigmentation mutants. As a consequence, different names have been used in publications for loci, genes and corresponding proteins. In the following article, we present the rules and guidelines for gene nomenclature, and provide the current nomenclature for pigmentation mutants in the mouse.
