OMIA 001460-102329 : Flesh colour in Pinctada margaritifera
In other species: Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Co-Dominant Considered a defect: no Key variant known: no Inheritance: From the results of strategic crosses, Ky et al. (2016) concluded that the segregation of shell colour is consistent with a single-locus "two-allele model for flesh trait, whereby the orange allele is recessive to the black fleshed type".
