OMIA:000514-9685 : Hypertriglyceridaemia in Felis catus (domestic cat)
In other species: dog
Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 145750 (trait)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Cross-species summary: Elevated fasting serum triglycerides concentrations are called Hypertriglyceridaemia. Primary Hypertriglyceridaemia is caused by genetic defects that cause abnormal triglyceride metabolism while secondary Hypertriglyceridaemia can be associated with other causes, such as nutrition, drugs, and/or other metabolic syndromes.
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
