OMIA:000823-9796 : Prognathism in Equus caballus (horse)

In other species: Mexican tetra , dog , ass (donkey) , taurine cattle , European seabass

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

Mapping: From a GWAS on 96 affected and 763 non-affected controls, each genotyped with the Illumina Equine 50K SNP BeadChip (yielding 38,124 informative SNPs), Signer-Hasler et al. (2014) identified a candidate region "on the distal end of chromosome ECA 13" in which there appeared to be no obvious candidate gene.

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
