Molecular basis: Xu et al. (2017) reported that a missense variant in the CORIN gene (c.1759C >T; p.H587Y) is a likely causal variant for "golden tiger pelage", having shown that "A perfect correlation was detected between CORIN c.1759C >T and the “wideband” phenotype among unrelated individuals from wild or captive tiger populations worldwide . . . . All golden (n = 16) and snow white (n = 22) tigers were homozygous for CORIN c.1759C >T; all orange (n = 123) and white (n = 36) tigers carried at least one copy of the wild-type allele". FN is grateful to Corinne Benavides for alerting him to this discovery.

WARNING! Inclusion of a variant in this table does not automatically mean that it should be used for DNA testing. Anyone contemplating the use of any of these variants for DNA testing should examine critically the relevant evidence (especially in breeds other than the breed in which the variant was first described). If it is decided to proceed, the location and orientation of the variant sequence should be checked very carefully.
Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
