OMIA:001202-9031 : Scleroderma in Gallus gallus (chicken)

Categories: Immune system phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 181750 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific name: Also known as Systemic sclerosis. This disorder is characteristic of University of Davis (UCD) lines 200 and 206

Species-specific symbol: SSc

Mapping: Ek et al. (2012) conducted a genome scan on the the backcross generation from a cross between the UCD-200 line and red jungle fowl. QTL were identified on chromosomes GGA2, GGA12, and GGA14.
