OMIA 000807-9823 : Polycystic kidney disease in Sus scrofa

In other species: domestic cat , horse , dog , , sheep , degu , rabbit , springbok , Western roe deer , crab-eating macaque , markhor

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 173900 (trait) , 601313 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: PKD

Species-specific description: This disorder in pigs is the result of "mono-allelic knockout (KO) of PKD1 using zinc finger nuclease" (He et al., 2015). Affected animals are, therefore, genetically-modified organisms (GMO).
