OMIA 001600-9615 : Athletic performance in Canis lupus familiaris

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: no

Markers: Huson et al. (2011) reported an association between a polymorphism in the ACE gene and Alaskan sled dogs whose racing skills are classified as "sprint" or "distance".
