OMIA 000951-9031 : Stumpy wing in Gallus gallus

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: stu

Mapping: Robb et al. (2011) mapped this trait to chromosome GGA 10q (12,305,229-14,107,446)

Clinical features: "Homozygotes (-/-) have conical leg buds and a poorly to nonvascularized allantois that never gets larger than the head; embryo death typically between E5-7 is associated with massive multiple hemorrhages" (Robb et al., 2011)
