OMIA 001360-8839 : Trimethylaminuria (fishy taint) in Anas platyrhynchos

In other species: chicken , cattle , Japanese quail

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 602079

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Molecular basis: As a first step towards searching for causal mutations in the most obvious candidate gene for this disorder, Wang et al. (2013) conducted a cloning, sequencing and expression analysis of the duck FMO3 gene.
