OMIA 002187-9796 : Bilateral corneal stromal loss in Equus caballus
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes Mode of inheritance: X-linked recessive Considered a defect: yes Key variant known: no Species-specific symbol: BCSL Inheritance: Alberi et al. (2018) provided pedigree evidence compatible with X-linked inheritance, which is consistent with the higher incidence in males than in females reported by Boerma et al. (2012) (8/9) and Alberi et al. (2018) (11/15). Molecular basis: Sequencing of a positional (X-linked) candidate gene (BGN, encoding biglycan) led to Alberi et al. (2018) "Ruling out BGN variants as simple X‐linked causative mutations for bilateral corneal stromal loss in Friesian horses". Clinical features: Alberi et al. (2018): "Bilateral corneal stromal loss (BCSL), [is] a disorder characterized by focal, symmetric thinning of the inferior peripheral corneal stroma unaccompanied by inflammation". Breed: Friesian.
