OMIA:002005-9986 : Rex coat, r2 type in Oryctolagus cuniculus
Categories: Integument (skin) phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Mode of inheritance: Autosomal recessive
Considered a defect: no
Key variant known: no
Species-specific name: Deutsch-Kurzhaar
Species-specific symbol: dek; r2
Species-specific description: See Robinson (1958, p. 300), who calls this trait "German short-hair".
History: As recounted by Castle and Nachtsheim (1933), "in 1926, a breeder in Hamburg, Germany, discovered a short-haired rabbit in the hutches of another breeder at Lubeck, Germany. He was able promptly to establish from this individual the race Rex No. 2 (Deutsch-Kurzhaar)."
Mapping: Castle and Nachtsheim (1933) showed that r2 rex is linked to r1 rex (OMIA 001566-9986) with a recombination frequency of 10-12%. These same authors showed that the third type of rex in rabbits, r3 (OMIA 002006-9986), segregates independently of r1 and r2.
