OMIA:000428-9913 : Haemochromatosis in Bos taurus (taurine cattle)

In other species: Ring-tailed lemur , Lesser dwarf lemur , white-tufted-ear marmoset , horse , black rhinoceros , red deer , Sumatran rhinoceros , hill myna

Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 231100 (trait) , 235200 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Inheritance: The resemblance of this disorder to human haemochromatosis (see MIM entries above) leads to the expectation that this disorder in cattle is also inherited. O'Toole et al. (2001) provided supporting evidence for autosomal recessive inheritance from a test mating, but concluded "It was not possible to establish the pattern of inheritance because of the small number of pedigrees from affected cattle"
