OMIA:001793-9685 : Resistance/susceptibility to feline infectious peritonitis in Felis catus (domestic cat)

Categories: Immune system phene

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: FIP

Species-specific description: Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease of cats caused by feline enteric coronavirus (FeCV). Some breeds have been reported to have higher risks for prevalence of FIP.

Mapping: Golovko et al. (2013) conducted a GWAS by genotyping "38 Birman cats that died of FIP and 161 healthy cats from breeders in Denmark and USA . . . using 63K SNPs distributed across the feline genome". Four QTL were identified.
