OMIA 002354-9913 : Male subfertility in Bos taurus

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: Abdollahi-Arpanahi et al.(2021) "identified a set of high-impact mutations in low-fertility bulls, including nonsense, missense, and frameshift variants. Some of these mutations may be considered as strong candidate causal variants for bull subfertility...."

Breed: Holstein.
