Categories: Digestive / alimentary phene

Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s)s (MIM numbers): 251850 (trait) , 606540 (gene)

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: Engevik et al. (2020: "Pigs were cloned by transfer of chromatin from swine primary fetal fibroblasts, which were edited with TALENs and single strand oligonucleotide to introduce a P663 to L663 substitution in the endogenous swine MYO5B (corresponding to the P660L mutation in human MYO5B, associated with [human] MVID [Microvillus inclusion disease]) to fertilized oocytes". These pigs are genetically-modified organisms (GMO).

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
