OMIA:001841-9913 : Distichiasis in Bos taurus (taurine cattle)

In other species: dog , horse

Categories: Vision / eye phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 126300 (trait)

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".

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.
