OMIA:001119-89462 : Abomasum, displaced in Bubalus bubalis (water buffalo)
Categories: Digestive / alimentary phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Cross-species summary: The abomasum is the fourth stomach in ruminants, often called the "true" stomach because of its structural and functional homology with the stomach of non-ruminants. Soon after parturition, the abomasum sometimes becomes distended either to the left (left abomasal displacement) or to the right (right abomasal displacement), resulting in anorexia and acetonaemia.
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
