OMIA 001958-9913 : Growth retardation due to haplotype FH2 in Bos taurus

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 227810

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Mapping: Chromosome 1: 96,169,900-97,123,740 (UMD3.1 genome assembly) (Pausch et al., 2015)

Molecular basis: Frameshift indel: c.771_778delTTGAAAAGinsCATC (rs379675307) in SLC2A2 that encodes glucose transporter 2 (GLUT2)(Pausch et al., 2015).

Burgstaller et al. (2016) have provided strong evidence that this FH2 frameshift mutation is actually causative of Fanconi-Bickel syndrome (OMIA 000366-9913). Accordingly, the likely causal mutation is now listed under this disorder rather than in this entry.

Breed: Fleckvieh.

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.
