The squiggle tail (squig) mutation in mice is associated with a deletion in the mesenchyme homeobox 1 (Meox1) gene

Jon Girard II, et al. Make the case to assign the spontaneous squiggle tail (squig) mutation in mice to a defect in the gene Meox1. They also suggest this genetic variant could serve as a model for Klippel-Feil syndrome 2 (KFS2) in humans.
