Species-specific description: Ninausz et al. (2023) "identified that the mutation responsible for white coat in golden jackals ... is the same as in dogs [see OMIA:001199-9615 : Coat colour, extension in Canis lupus familiaris]. This allele was introduced to the species possibly through an earlier hybridization event with an ancient type dog. [The authors] also identified three dog-golden jackal hybrid animals, two of them are heterozygous for the CBD103 DeltaG23 mutation causing black coat [see OMIA:001416-9615 : Coat colour, dominant black in Canis lupus familiaris], and one of them is heterozygous for the SILV SINE insertion causing merle pattern in dogs [see OMIA:000211-9615 : Coat colour, merle in Canis lupus familiaris]. [These] findings confirm that golden jackals interbreed with dogs and hybridization with dogs results in phenotypic change ... ."
