OMIA:001413-9823 : Retinitis pigmentosa in Sus scrofa (pig)

In other species: taurine cattle

Categories: Vision / eye phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal dominant

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: The report in this entry is of a genetically-modified organism (GMO)

Molecular basis: This entry records the artificial creation of a mutant retinitis pigmentosa line of pigs by Ross et al. (2012) by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) of a mutated form (Pro23His) of the human RHO gene into a line of miniature pigs.

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
