OMIA:000383-9925 : Fecundity, BMPR1B-related in Capra hircus (goat)

In other species: sheep

Categories: Reproductive system phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 134720 (trait) , 609441 (trait) , 603248 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: unknown

Species-specific description: Bi et al. (2021) investigated Fec B expression in six different goat tissues, and analyzed the effect of five potential copy number variations (CNVs) (CNV1-5) within the Fec B gene on litter size. The authors propose that CNV3 and CNV5 could serve as potential DNA molecular markers. Jose et al. (2023) report creation of a FecB mutation into goat embryos using CRISPR technology (GMO).

Genetic engineering: Yes - in addition to the occurrence of natural variants, variants have been created artificially, e.g. by genetic engineering or gene editing
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
