OMIA 001278-9823 : Hypotrichosis, dominant in Sus scrofa
In other species: golden hamster Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 146520 , 146550 , 183849 , 211370 , 203655 , 246500 , 250460 , 278200 Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Considered a defect: yes Key variant known: no Cross-species summary: Dominant form of hair loss. Inheritance: Meyer and Drommer (1968) provided convincing evidence of autosomal dominant inheritance of hairlessness. It seems very likely that the causative mutation is at a different locus from that which gives rise to "Hypotrichosis, recessive" (MIA 000540) in pigs. However, breeding trials to test non-allelism have not been reported.
Note: the references are listed in reverse chronological order (from the most recent year to the earliest year), and alphabetically by first author within a year.
