OMIA 001595-9940 : Brachygnathia, cardiomegaly and renal hypoplasia syndrome in Ovis aries

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: BCRHS

History: This lethal disorder was first described by Shariflou et al. (2011). Its clinical signs are well described by its name.

Mapping: By genotyping 10 affected and 27 control Merinos, each with the Illumina Ovine SNP50 BeadChip (yielding 40,899 informative SNPs), Shariflou et al. (2013) used GWAS and homozygosity mapping to locate this disorder to "a region comprising 20 consecutive SNPs spanning 1.1 Mb towards the distal end of chromosome OAR2".


Note: the references are listed in reverse chronological order (from the most recent year to the earliest year), and alphabetically by first author within a year.
