OMIA 000439-9615 : Hair, long in Canis lupus familiaris
By conducting a GWAS on "903 dogs from 80 breeds with eight to 12 dogs unrelated at the grandparent level chosen to represent each breed", each dog genotyped with an Affymetrix Version 2 Canine SNP chip (yielding 40,812 informative SNPs for analysis), Cadieu et al. (2009) highlighted the region on chromosome CFA32 that contains the FGF5 gene, a mutation in which had been shown to be causal of hair length by Housley and Venta (2006) (see Molecular Basis section).Molecular basis: Using the candidate-gene approach, Housley and Venta (2006) sequenced the FGF5 gene in short- and long-haired dogs, and revealed the causative mutation to be "a missense mutation, resulting in the substitution of Phe for Cys, in a highly conserved region. Genotyping of 218 dogs from three breeds fixed for long hair, eight breeds fixed for short hair and five breeds in which long hair is segregating provided evidence that the missense mutation is associated with the hair-length differences among these breeds." Cadieu et al. (2009) confirmed this causal mutation.
Dierks et al. (2013) "detected three novel mutations in the coding sequence and one novel non-coding splice-site mutation in FGF5 associated with the long-hair phenotype".Associated gene:

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 headers.
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.
