OMIA:002158-9541 : Developmental retardation in Macaca fascicularis (crab-eating macaque)

Categories: Mortality / aging (incl. embryonic lethal)

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 606211 (gene)

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: This is genetically-modified organism (GMO)

Molecular basis: Zhang et al. (2018) generated "a SIRT6-null cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis) model using a CRISPR-Cas9-based approach. SIRT6-deficient monkeys die hours after birth and exhibit severe prenatal developmental retardation".

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
