Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 131705 (trait) , 131750 (trait) , 131950 (trait) , 132000 (trait) , 226500 (trait) , 226600 (trait)

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Blisters on the outer layer of skin.

Species-specific description: Bruckner-Tuderman et al. (1991) showed that the occurrence of an autosomal recessive form of this disorder in a flock of Weiss Alpenschaf sheep from Switzerland was due to a deficiency of collagen VII.

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