OMIA:001764-30538 : Choanal atresia in Vicugna pacos

In other species: domestic cat , ass , dog , horse , sheep , llama

Categories: Respiratory system phene

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 608911 (trait) , 214800 (trait)

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Molecular basis: Investigation of a comparative candidate gene (CHD7) led to Reed et al. (2013) concluding that mutations in this gene "do not appear to be the primary cause of CA in alpacas".
