OMIA:000350-9031 : Eudiplopodia in Gallus gallus (chicken)

Categories: Limbs / fins / digit / tail phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

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)
