OMIA:000388-9685 : Fibrodysplasia ossificans in Felis catus (domestic cat)
Categories: Muscle phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Considered a defect: yes
Key variant known: yes
Year key variant first reported: 2019
Cross-species summary: Casal et al. (2019): "also called progressive ossifying myositis and myositis ossificans"
Molecular basis: Applying a comparative candidate gene approach to two affected domestic shorthair cats, Casal et al. (2019) "revealed the same heterozygous mutation in the activin A receptor type I (ACVR1) gene [c.617G>A; p.R206H] that occurs in humans with FOP [fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva]" (see OMIM hyperlink at the top of this page)
Clinical features: Casal et al. (2019): "Two domestic shorthair cats, 1 intact female and 1 intact male, presented with progressive limb lameness and digital deformities at 4 and 6 months of age. Stiffness and swelling of the distal thoracic and pelvic limb joints progressed to involve hip and shoulder joints, resulting in reduced mobility. Radiographs in both cats and computed tomography of the male cat revealed ankylosing, polyarticular deposits of extracortical heterotopic bone spanning multiple axial and appendicular joints, extending into adjacent musculotendinous tissues. All findings supported fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), a disorder characterized by toe malformations and progressive heterotopic ossification in humans."
Himalayan (Cat) (VBO_0100117),
Maine Coon (Cat) (VBO_0100154).

By default, variants are sorted chronologically by year of publication, to provide a historical perspective.
Readers can re-sort on any column by clicking on the column header. Click it again to sort in a descending
order. To create a multiple-field sort, hold down Shift while clicking on the second, third etc relevant column
WARNING! Inclusion of a variant in this table does not automatically mean that it should be used for DNA testing. Anyone contemplating the use of any of these variants for DNA testing should examine critically the relevant evidence (especially in breeds other than the breed in which the variant was first described). If it is decided to proceed, the location and orientation of the variant sequence should be checked very carefully.
Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
