Cross-species summary: Hemoglobinuria, paroxysmal nocturnal

Species-specific description: Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria is a clonal hematopoietic disorder linked to acquired somatic loss-of-function mutations in hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) inactivating the X-linked PIG-A gene (Shin et al., 2019). Shin et al. (2019) "used CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing of RM [rhesus monkey] HSPCs to create loss-of-function insertions/deletions (indels) in the PIG-A gene, followed by autologous transplantation and long-term follow-up." (genetically modified model - 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
