OMIA 000823-9793 : Prognathism in Equus asinus

In other species: dog , horse , cattle

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 176700 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Markers: Using a comparative candidate gene strategy, based on evidence from humans, Rodrigues et al. (2013) identified a SNP (g503G>A) in an intron of the MATN1 gene (encoding Matrilin-1) with a significant association with this disorder.

Breed: Zamorano-Leonés.
