OMIA 001504-9940 : Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, 1 in Ovis aries

In other species: dog

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 256730 (trait) , 600722 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: CLN1

Species-specific description: This disorder in sheep has been created by CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing. The affected sheep are, therefore, genetically-modified organisms (GMO).

Molecular basis: Eaton et al. (2019): "Three PPT1 homozygote sheep were generated by insertion of a disease-causing PPT1 (R151X) human mutation into the orthologous sheep locus".
