OMIA 000243-9823 : Cryptorchidism in Sus scrofa

In other species: domestic cat , cattle , dog , goat , horse , sheep , llama , Arabian camel , puma

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 100100 , 219050 , 314300

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: Failure of one (unilateral) or both (bilateral) testes to descend.

Inheritance: Both unilateral and bilateral cryptorchidism are familial in pigs, but there is no convincing evidence for single-locus inheritance.
