Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: no

Mapping: Kumari et al. (2023) characterised the ASIP gene in buffalo and investigated a "non-synonymous SNP (c.292C>T) identified in the exon 3 region of the [ASIP] gene ... . ... results convey the association of the black coat colour of Murrah with the ASIP gene TT genotype and the lighter shades of black coat (brown and greyish-black) colour phenotype in other breeds with the CC genotype."

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