OMIA 001342-9615 : Mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB in Canis lupus familiaris

In other species: emu , cattle , pig

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 252920

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: yes

Year key variant first reported: 2003

Cross-species summary: Also known as Sanfilippo syndrome type B

Molecular basis: To FN's knowledge, the only mention of this causal mutation is in the abstract by Ellinwood et al. (2003 conference of the American Society of Human Genetics). These authors reported the likely causal variant to be "a poly(A) insertion (~45 adenines) in the sixth exon of the NAGLU gene. The poly(A) insert is flanked on the 3 border by a 13 bp repeat of the native NAGLU sequence immediately 5 to the poly(A) insert. The insert was found to be polymorphic in the affected individual, differing by the number of adenine residues present. The insert is predicted to lead to the insertion of ~15 lysine residues starting after amino acid 704 of the unmodified protein sequence."

Variants

By default, variants are sorted chronologically by year of publication, to provide a historical perspective. Readers can re-sort on any column by clicking on the column header. Click it again to sort in a descending order. To create a multiple-field sort, hold down Shift while clicking on the second, third etc relevant column headers.

WARNING! Inclusion of a variant in this table does not automatically mean that it should be used for DNA testing. Anyone contemplating the use of any of these variants for DNA testing should examine critically the relevant evidence (especially in breeds other than the breed in which the variant was first described). If it is decided to proceed, the location and orientation of the variant sequence should be checked very carefully.
