In other species: tiger keelback

Categories: Pigmentation phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: X-linked recessive

Considered a defect: no

Key variant known: no

Inheritance: In this species, males are heterogametic (XY) but the sex chromosomes have the same shape and size (Miura et al., 2012). These authors provided evidence that whitish-yellow body colour is X-linked recessive.
