OMIA:002200-9031 : Hyperpigmentation, ASIP-related in Gallus gallus (chicken)

In other species: indicine cattle (zebu)

Categories: Pigmentation phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 600201 (gene)

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."

Breed: Muchuan Silkies Black, China (Chicken) (VBO_0006731).
Breeds in which the phene has been documented. (If a likely causal variant has been documented for the phene, see the variant table breeds in which the variant has been reported).
