Restriction endonuclease analysis of genomic DNA was carried out for three types of dwarf mice (Little, Ames dwarf and Snell dwarf) that have genetic defects in GH expression. We found the GH genes to be present in homozygotes for each mutant allele as well as in their control litter-mates. These three type of dwarf mice may be useful in studying the molecular basis of inherited GH deficiency and as models for analogous genetic disorders of human GH expression.
