OMIA:000240-328808 : Crest in Streptopelia risoria (ringneck dove)
Categories: Integument (skin) phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Mode of inheritance: Autosomal recessive
Considered a defect: yes
Key variant known: yes
Year key variant first reported: 2015
Cross-species summary: Also called feather-crested head.
Molecular basis: Vickrey et al. (2015) "identified a G to A mutation in the sixth exon of EphB2 of crested birds (cr dove); this change is predicted to result in a glycine to arginine amino acid substitution at position 636 of the protein (Gly636Arg)"
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
