OMIA:001841-9913 : Distichiasis in Bos taurus (taurine cattle)
Categories: Vision / eye phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 126300 (trait)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: yes
Cross-species summary: Two rows of eyelashes
History: The first report of this trait in cattle was by Allais-Bonnet et al. (2013), gleaned from a survey of "more than 100 French breeders, agricultural engineers and agricultural technicians for putative observation of additional phenotypes associated with polledness".
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
Clinical features: As reported by Allais-Bonnet et al. (2013), "visual examination of 166 horned and 78 polled animals" revealed a very strong association between this trait and polledness due to the Celtic and Friesian polled alleles.
