The single endogenous DBA/2J ectropic provirus segregated concordantly with the dilute (d) coat colour mutation on chromosome 9 in 53/53 DBA/2J-derived recombinant inbred mouse strains and all seven inbred and mutant strains tested that carry the d allele. Analysis of DNA from a spontaneous DBA/2J d revertant (d+2J) showed that these mice lack ecotropic-specific MuLV DNA sequences and suggested that the dilute mutation resulted from integration of an ecotropic provirus into the mouse genome.
