OMIA 001474-9615 : Rupture of the cranial cruciate ligament in Canis lupus familiaris

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: RCCL

Inheritance: Wilke et al. (2006) showed that this disorder is heritable, but the form of inheritance remains to be determined.

GWAS conducted by Baker et al. (2017) and Hayward et al. (2019) established the multifactorial nature of this disorder, with numerous QTL reported. The latter study reported a QTL of relatively large effect "on CFA20: 42,827,199 . . . in the gene LIM Domain-Containing 1 (LIMD1), which is involved in regulating stress osteoclastogenesis, and osteoblast function and differentiation"
