OMIA:001769-9913 : Y anomaly in low reproductive females in Bos taurus (taurine cattle)

Categories: Reproductive system phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing

Prevalence: Following a GWAS with >700,000 SNPs for reproductive performance in cattle, McDaneld et al. (2012) reported "that 21 to 29% of females in the low reproductive category were positive by a Y chromosome PCR test normally used to sex embryos".
