OMIA:001138-10141 : Hypocatalasia in Cavia porcellus (domestic guinea pig)

In other species: dog

Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 614097 (trait) , 115500 (gene)

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.
