Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: This disorder in hamsters has been produced by targeted disruption of the IL2RG gene (natural mutations in which cause X-linked SCID in dogs and humans). Thus, the reports in this entry concern a genetically-modified organism (GMO)

Genetic engineering: Yes - variants have been created artificially, e.g. by genetic engineering or gene editing
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing

Associated gene:
