OMIA:000420-9615 : Glycogen storage disease IV in Canis lupus familiaris (dog)

In other species: domestic cat , horse

Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 232500 (trait) , 607839 (gene)

Links to MONDO diseases:

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: Glycogen storage disease caused by glycogen branching enzyme (GBE) deficiency

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

Clinical features: Jolly et al. (2002) reported that "The nature, distribution and histochemistry of lesions observed [in a mixed-breed dog] are consistent with a putative diagnosis of Glycogen storage disease type IV, an inherited metabolic defect associated with a deficiency of glycogen-branching enzyme not previously reported in dogs."

Breed: Mixed Breed (Dog) (VBO_0200902).
Breeds in which the phene has been documented. For breeds in which a likely causal variant has been documented, see the variant table below
