OMIA 000573-9615 : Kartagener syndrome in Canis lupus familiaris

In other species: domestic cat , pig

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 244400 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

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).
