OMIA 000618-9544 : Macrostomus in Macaca mulatta

In other species: rabbit

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 154500

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Treacher Collins syndrome

Molecular basis: Shows et al. (2006) reported a substantially reduced level of mRNA from the candidate gene (TCOF1), but there was no difference in coding and splice-site nucleotide sequence between affected and normal monkeys.
