OMIA:002242-9986 : Muscular dystrophy, ANO5-related in Oryctolagus cuniculus (rabbit)

Categories: Muscle phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 613319 (trait) , 611307 (trait) , 608662 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: Sui et al. (2018) "engineered mutant ANO5 rabbits via co-injection of Cas9 mRNA and sgRNA into the zygotes. CRISPR-mediated small indels in the exon 12 and/or 13 in the mutant rabbits lead to the development of typical signs of muscular dystrophy with increased serum creatine kinase (CK), muscle necrosis, regeneration, fatty replacement and fibrosis." These animals are genetically-modifeed organisms (GMO).

Genetic engineering: Yes - variants have been created artificially, e.g. by genetic engineering or gene editing
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
