OMIA:000662-9823 : Motor neuron disease, lower in Sus scrofa (pig)

In other species: dog , horse , sheep , South Island takahe

Categories: Nervous system phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: In presenting extensive pathological information on this disorder, O'Toole et al. (1994) concluded that a likely cause was primary or secondary mitochondrial dysfunction, possibly due to mutation(s) in mitochondrial DNA.
