In other species: dog , domestic cat , pig , Western roe deer , taurine cattle , sheep , rabbit , saber-toothed cat , raccoon dog

Categories: Skeleton phene (incl. short stature & teeth)

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 142669 (trait) , 142700 (trait) , 244510 (trait) , 265050 (trait) , 615612 (trait)

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Laxity of the hip joint, resulting from a shallow acetabulum and/or a small, mis-shapen head of the femur. In severe cases, affected animals are lame.

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