Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: no

Key variant known: no

Inheritance: Kowalski et al. (2012) reported this trait as being autosomal recessive.

Mapping: From the results of a GWAS using the Illumina Equine SNP70 BeadChip on 24 Puerto Rican horses, Kowalski et al. (2012) mapped this trait to chromosome ECA1.

Breed: Paso Fino.
