OMIA 001342-9823 : Mucopolysaccharidosis IIIB in Sus scrofa

In other species: emu , dog , cattle

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 252920 (trait) , 609701 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

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

Species-specific description: This disorder in pigs is due to the creation of a loss-of-function allele at the NAGLU locus by transgenesis. It is therefore a genetically modified organism (GMO)
