OMIA:002200-9031 : Hyperpigmentation, ASIP-related in Gallus gallus (chicken)
In other species: indicine cattle (zebu)
Categories: Pigmentation phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 600201 (gene)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: unknown
Markers: Yu et al. (2019) reported that "the c.-1826A>T mutation . . . in the ASIP gene promoter . . . may affect chicken skin color by altering ASIP transcriptional activity."
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
Muchuan Silkies Black, China (Chicken) (VBO_0006731).
