OMIA 000114-56790 : Blindness in Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax

In other species: chicken , gray wolf

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive Lethal

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: The common name for this species is "red-billed chough"

History: Trask et al. (2016) "demonstrate the phenotypic expression of a lethal recessive allele in a wild population of conservation concern, and provide a general framework for inferring allele distribution and persistence and informing management responses"

Inheritance: Trask et al. (2016) provided evidence of autosomal recessive inheritance of this lethal condition.
