OMIA:001141-452646 : Tyrosinemia, type II in Neovison vison (American mink)

Categories: Homeostasis / metabolism phene

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 276600 (trait)

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific name: Tyrosine transaminase deficiency

Molecular basis: Leib et al. (2005) sequenced cDNA and genomic DNA from the most likely functional candidate gene (tyrosine aminotransferase) in affected and normal mink, but found no differences in sequence.

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
