In other species: pig

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 143100

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: Yang et al. (2008) developed "a transgenic model of HD in a rhesus macaque that expresses polyglutamine-expanded HTT". Resultant animals are genetically-modified organisms (GMO).
