OMIA 001920-27706 : Abortion, GHRH-related in Micropterus salmoides

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Recessive Embryonic Lethal

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: yes

Year key variant first reported: 2014

Molecular basis: In the course of sequencing the GHRH gene in largemouth bass, Ma et al. (2014) identified a 66bp deletion (c.-923_-858del) in the 5' flanking region of the GHRH gene, and via segregation studies, showed that it is an autosomal recessive embryonic lethal. The heterozygote does not differ significantly from the normal homozygote in growth traits.
