OMIA 001213-9986 : Premature senesence in Oryctolagus cuniculus

In other species: pig

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 150330 (gene) , 176670 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Progeria, Progeria Syndrome, Hutchinson-Gilford progeria

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.

The affected rabbits described by Liu et al. (2018, 2020) are generated by genome editing and are considered genetically-modified organisms (GMO).
