OMIA 002192-9612 : Williams-Beuren syndrome in Canis lupus

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 194050

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Markers: vonHoldt 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."
