OMIA 001726-9823 : Resistance to Salmonella enterica serovar Choleraesuis (SC) in Sus scrofa

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: no

Key variant known: no

Molecular basis: Shinkai et al. (2011) reported results of in vitro studies showing that three missense SNPs in porcine toll-like receptors ("TLR5(R148L), TLR5(P402L), and TLR2(V703M) attenuated the responses to SC by the cells transfected with the TLR genes", providing circumstantial evidence for inherited resistance to SC. Muneta et al. (2012) developed a genotyping test for the second of these SNPs "(TLR5) (C1205T; P402L)", which will enable investigation of the effect of this SNP on resistance.
