OMIA:002006-9986 : Rex coat, r3 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: Normandy rex; Normannen-Kurzhaar
Species-specific symbol: nok; r3
Species-specific description: See Robinson (1958, p. 300).
History: As recounted by Caste and Nachtsheim (1933), "in 1927, in . . . France a breeder of Himalayan rabbits, Madame Du Bary, observed that short-haired individuals were occurring among her animals. From these she established a race which we will call Rex No. 3 (Normannen-Kurzhaar)."
Mapping: Castle and Nachtsheim (1933) showed that r3 rex segregates independently of the other two types of rex, namely r1 rex (OMIA 001566-9986) and r2 rex (OMIA 002005-9986), with the latter two having a recombination frequency of 10-12%.
