OMIA 001797-9615 : Mast cell tumour in Canis lupus familiaris

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Markers: Biasoli et al. (2019) reported a "SNP rs850678541 (CFA31:34760750) represents a G>A transition (plus DNA strand) located in exon 16 of the canine DSCAM gene, which encodes a cell adhesion molecule. It occurs in the third base of a codon (representing arginine), and, as such, is a synonymous mutation (changing the codon from CGC to CGT)" that is associated with mast cell tumors in Golden and Labrador Retirevers.
