OMIA 001819-9913 : Xanthinuria, type II in Bos taurus
Murgiano et al. (2016) discovered a different mutation in the MUCOS gene as the likely cause in Tyrolean Grey cattle: "1 bp deletion in the molybdenum cofactor sulfurase (MOCOS) gene (g.21222030delC; c.1881delG and c.1782delG), located in an 11 Mb region of homozygosity on BTA 24)".Clinical features: As reported by Watanabe et al. (2000), this disorder is "characterized by elevated xanthine secretion in the urine associated with lethal growth retardation at approximately 6 months of age . . . Affected cattle had expanded renal tubules containing xanthine calculi ranging from 1–3 mm in diameter". A diagnostic feature is the lack of xanthine dehydrogenase (XDH) and aldehyde oxidase (AO). Prevalence: Watanabe et al. (2000) "confirmed that more than 300 xanthinuria-affected [Japanese Black] cattle have been recorded over the last 20 years and that all parents were descendants of a putative founder sire. Affected male, female, and unknown offspring numbered 177, 148, and 9, respectively." Bhati et al. (2020) reported that two Braunvieh "ancestor bulls born in 1967 and 1974 ... were heterozygous carriers of a single base pair deletion (BTA24:g.21222030delC) in the MOCOS gene that causes xanthinuria in the homozygous state in Tyrolean grey cattle." Breed: Japanese Black. Associated gene:

By default, variants are sorted chronologically by year of publication, to provide a historical perspective. Readers can re-sort on any column by clicking on the column header. Click it again to sort in a descending order. To create a multiple-field sort, hold down Shift while clicking on the second, third etc relevant column headers.
WARNING! Inclusion of a variant in this table does not automatically mean that it should be used for DNA testing. Anyone contemplating the use of any of these variants for DNA testing should examine critically the relevant evidence (especially in breeds other than the breed in which the variant was first described). If it is decided to proceed, the location and orientation of the variant sequence should be checked very carefully.
Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
