OMIA:001091-9823 : Ataxia, progressive in Sus scrofa (pig)

In other species: dog , taurine cattle

Categories: Behaviour / neurological phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: A progressive failure of muscle co-ordination, resulting in perverse movements. References for cattle are listed under: Hypomyelinogenesis, congenital (OMIA 000527-9913)

Species-specific name: congenital progressive ataxia and spastic paresis

Species-specific symbol: CPA

Species-specific description: The central nervous system appears normal at birth, but older pigs show dysplasia of the cerebellar cortex. Rimaila-Parnanen (1982) provided convincing evidence of autosomal recessive inheritance

Markers: y
