OMIA 000439-9925 : Hair, long in Capra hircus

In other species: domestic cat , golden hamster , dog , rabbit , cattle , ass , domestic guinea pig , llama

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: no

Cross-species summary: Long hair = angora

Species-specific description: The molecular evidence reported in this entry is a result of the use of the CRISPR/Cas9 strategy to create genetically-modified (GMO) animals.

Molecular basis: Wang et al. (2016) reported that "the disruption of FGF5 [by CRISPR/Cas9] results in increased number of second hair follicles and enhanced fiber length in Cas9-mediated goats, suggesting more cashmere will be produced"
