OMIA 001213-9986 : Premature senesence in Oryctolagus cuniculus

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 150330

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific name: Premature aging syndrome

Species-specific description: This affected rabbits produced by Sui et al. (2019) are the result of "precise LMNA targeting in rabbits via co-injection of Cas9/sgRNA mRNA into zygotes", i.e. it is a knock-out model of human premature aging inherited disorders. As such it is a genetically-modified organism (GMO).
