OMIA 000615-9823 : Lymphosarcoma in Sus scrofa
In other species: rabbit Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Considered a defect: yes Key variant known: no Cross-species summary: Malignant neoplastic disorder of lymphoid tissue. Inheritance: McTaggart et al. (1979) provided convincing evidence that this disorder is autosomal recessive in pigs. Clinical features: Stunted growth, pot-belly, enlargement of superficial lymph nodes, an increase in circulating lymphocytes, and death before 15 months of age. Postmortem examination reveals sarcoma involving all lymph nodes, but primarily those draining the gut and lung (Head et al., 1974).
Note: the references are listed in reverse chronological order (from the most recent year to the earliest year), and alphabetically by first author within a year.
