OMIA 001826-9913 : Abortion due to haplotype HH4 in Bos taurus
This present OMIA entry is for HH4, which is located in chromosome BTA1, at 1.9-3.3Mb (UMD 3.1 genome assembly) (Fritz et al., 2013).Molecular basis: For eight of the nine haplotypes with a significant effect on calving rate (see Mapping section), Fritz et al. (2013) searched for causal mutations via whole-genome sequence data from 25 Holstein, 11 Montbéliarde and nine Normande bulls which had made major contributions to their breed. Specifically, they filtered "for mutations that were (a) located at+or –6 Mb from the detected haplotype (b) carried in the heterozygous state by the carrier bulls and (c) absent from the non carrier bulls from the three breeds" and then examined identified polymorphisms for their likely effect on protein structure and function. For HH4, Fritz et al. (2013) provided convincing evidence for a candidate causal mutation, namely a missense mutation (g.1277227A.C; UMD 3.1 genome assembly) in the GART gene (which encodes glycinamide ribonucleotide transformylase), leading to p.N290T. Clinical features: The effect of this haplotype is a reduction of 5.8% in heifer calving rate and of 1.74% in cow calving rate (Fritz et al., 2013). Prevalence: The HH4 haplotype occurs with a frequency of 3.6% in the 47,878 Holstein adult cattle sampled by Fritz et al. (2013), but never as a homozygote. Breed: Holstein. 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.
