OMIA 001916-9615 : Familial adenomatous polyposis in Canis lupus familiaris

In other species: pig

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 175100

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: yes

Year key variant first reported: 2020

Molecular basis: Yoshizaki et al. (2020) reported that "all examined JRTs with GI polyps (n=21) harbored the identical heterozygous germline APC mutations, represented by a two-base pair substitution [c.[462_463delinsTT]]. The latter substitution was a nonsense mutation (p.K155X) resulting in a truncated APC protein, thus suggesting a strong association with this cancer-prone disorder."

Genetic testing: Yoshizaki et al. (2021) reported a PCR-based genotyping test for the c.[462_463delinsTT] variant.

Breed: Jack Russell Terrier.

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.
