In other species: domestic cat , cattle , sheep , domestic guinea pig

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 248500

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: A lysosomal storage disease in which there is a buildup (storage) of mannose-rich compounds, due to the lack of the enzyme alpha-mannosidase, whose task is to cleave mannose from such compounds. Clinical signs include ataxia, head tremor, aggression, and finally paralysis and death.
