OMIA:002115-9612 : Stereotypical hypersociability in Canis lupus (gray wolf)

In other species: dog

Categories: Behaviour / neurological phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 194050 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: Williams-Beuren syndrome

Markers: von Holdt et al. (2019) "assessed transcriptome sequence data and found evidence that MEIs [mobile element insertions] impact the expression levels of six genes (WBSCR17, LIMK1, GTF2I, WBSCR27, BAZ1B, and BCL7B), all of which have known roles in human Williams-Beuren syndrome due to changes in copy number, typically hemizygosity."
