OMIA 001811-9615 : Tail, curl in Canis lupus familiaris

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Mapping: Jones et al. (2008) conducted an across-breed GWAS on 2,801 dogs from 147 breeds, each genotyped for 674 equally spaced SNPs, plus an additional 862 SNPs located in regions of interest. The results highlighted regions on CFA1, 9, 25 and 38.

By conducting a mammoth proof-of-principle GWAS on "11 [breeds] with curly tails and 7 [breeds] with straight tails", with each dog being genotyped with Illumina CanineHD array (yielding 157,393 SNPs for analysis) developed for this study, Vaysse et al. (2011) highlighted a region between 96.26 and 96.96Mb on chromosome CFA1, which is flanked by the genes RCL1 and JAK2.
