Species-specific description: According to O'Toole et al. (1994), this disorder was reported by Korovetzkaya (1938) to be inherited as a recessive trait in Large White pigs in the Soviet Union. Although definite evidence is lacking, it is possible that this disorder is the same as motor neurone disease, lower.
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
