OMIA 001866-9685 : Hypotrichosis, Don Sphynx in Felis catus
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Incompletely Dominant Considered a defect: yes Key variant known: no Species-specific name: Also known as Donskoy and Russian hairless Inheritance: Zhigachev et al. (2000) reported autosomal incompletely dominant inheritance. Molecular basis: In contrast to the situation with Canadian Sphynx cats, whose hairlessness is due to a mutation in KRT71 (see OMIA 001583-9685), Dierks et al. (2013) ruled out mutations in KRT71 as being causal for the hairlessness of Don Sphynx cats. Breed: Don Sphynx.
