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

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.
