OMIA:001254-9031 : Diplopodia-4 in Gallus gallus (chicken)

Categories: Limbs / fins / digit / tail phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Z-linked recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: dp-4

Mapping: Robb et al. (2011) mapped this trait to chromosome GGA Zp (8,942,878 - 11,608,187)

Clinical features: "Hemizygous female mutants (Z-/W) exhibit craniofacial defects along with truncation of the extremities, short stature, exposed viscera, preaxial polydactly, mild to severe cleft palate and a shortened upper beak; occasional elongation and duplication of the fibula" (Robb et al., 2011)
