OMIA:000515-9544 : Cardiomyopathy, hypertrophic in Macaca mulatta (Rhesus monkey)

In other species: woolly monkeys , dog , domestic cat , pig , Arabian camel , taurine cattle

Categories: Cardiovascular system phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 615396 (trait) , 115197 (trait) , 600958 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Increase in volume of the muscle tissue of the heart, due to an increase in the size of muscle cells, primarily in the left ventricle and ventricular septum.

Markers: Oldt et al. (2020) "uncovered a risk haplotype in the rhesus MYBPC3 gene, which is frequently disrupted in both human and feline HCM; this haplotype implicates an intronic variant strongly associated with disease in either homozygous or carrier form."
