OMIA 001465-9823 : Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, generic in Sus scrofa

In other species: cattle , sheep

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: Can be caused by various non-genetic factors such as ingestion of Jimsonweed or tobacco by pregnant sows. However, there is convincing evidence of a single-locus autosomal recessive form of this disorder (Lomo, 1985).

Inheritance: Lomo (1985) provided convincing evidence of a single-locus autosomal recessive form of this disorder.

Mapping: Genini et al. (2004) mapped porcine AMC to SSC5 q12-q23, at 92cM on a linkage map. Haubitz et al. (2012) refined the location to a 2.32 Mb region of SSC5.
