In other species: dog , domestic cat , horse , llama , taurine cattle , water buffalo

Categories: Pigmentation phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 193510 (trait) , 103500 (trait) , 156845 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: no

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Variable degree of white spotting ranging from tiny white spots up to completely white animals. The absence of pigment is caused by the absence of skin melanocytes ("leucism, leucistic"), not by failure in the biochemical reactions required for pigment synthesis.
