OMIA 000350-9031 : Eudiplopodia in Gallus gallus

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: eu

Mapping: Robb et al. (2011) mapped this trait to chromosome GGA 5q (25,679,935 - 26,751,804)

Clinical features: "Homozygotes (-/-) have extra digits (5–9) on the dorsal surfaces of the limb buds, which develop into extra, scaled bidorsal toes on the feet with conical nails and occasional dorsal knobs or digits on the wings; expression is variable; temperature sensitive phenotype" (Robb et al., 2011)
