OMIA:001435-93934 : Feather colour, extended brown in Coturnix japonica
Categories: Pigmentation phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Mode of inheritance: Autosomal incomplete dominant
Considered a defect: no
Key variant known: yes
Year key variant first reported: 2006
Species-specific symbol: E
Molecular basis: Nadeau et al. (2006) showed that this feather colour is due to missense mutation in the MC1R gene: "a G-to-A substitution leading to a Glu92Lys mutation . . . is likely to be the causative mutation for the increased melanism in [the] Extended brown" feather-colour phenotype.

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
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.
Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
