OMIA:000164-9103 : Cardiomyopathy, spontaneous in Meleagris gallopavo (turkey)

Categories: Cardiovascular system phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Markers: Using two samples of pooled DNA (one from affecteds, and one from normals), Hamblin et al. (1998) have identified several random-amplified-polymorphic-DNA (RAPD) bands that differentiate between affected and normal animals.

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
