OMIA 002217-9823 : Hyperphagia leading to hepatic steatosis in Sus scrofa
Hao et al. (2019) created "MC4R biallelic knockout pigs using CRISPR/Cas9" (Hao et al., 2019). This work concerns a genetically-modified organism (GMO).Clinical features: Hao et al. (2019) concluded "that deletion of MC4R results in hyperphagia and increased body fat, ultimately leading to hepatic steatosis without atherogenic diet." Associated gene:

By default, variants are sorted chronologically by year of publication, to provide a historical perspective. Readers can re-sort on any column by clicking on the column header. Click it again to sort in a descending order. To create a multiple-field sort, hold down Shift while clicking on the second, third etc relevant column headers.
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.
