OMIA:000823-9793 : Prognathism in Equus asinus

In other species: taurine cattle , dog , horse , Mexican tetra

Categories: Skeleton phene (incl. short stature & teeth)

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

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: abnormal protrusion of the mandible

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-Spain, Spain (Ass) (VBO_0001829).
