OMIA:001138-10141 : Hypocatalasia in Cavia porcellus (domestic guinea pig)
In other species: dog
Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Cross-species summary: Catalase catalyses the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to oxygen and water. Reduced levels of catalase can lead to hypocatalasemia / hypocatalasaemia or hypocatalasia and absence of catalase activity results in acatalasaemia / acatalasemia.
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
