OMIA:000573 : Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, generic

Categories: Respiratory system phene

Possible human homologue (MIM number): 244400 (trait)

Cross-species summary: Congenital defect in functioning of the cilia, which are minute hair-like processes that extend from cell surfaces, beating ryhthmically to move fluid or mucous over the surface. The abnormal functioning results in bronchiectasis (chronic dilation of the bronchi and bronchioles, with associated infection) and sinusitis (inflammation of one or more of the paranasal sinuses). It is also associated with dextrocardia (location of the heart in the right side of the thorax, rather than the usual left side). This phene was renamed in OMIA from 'Kartagener syndrome' to 'Ciliary dyskinesia, primary, generic' [3/6/2022].

Species in which this phene is found:
dog (Canis lupus familiaris)
domestic cat (Felis catus)
pig (Sus scrofa)
