OMIA:002423-9913 : Multiple ocular defects, WFDC1-related in Bos taurus (taurine cattle)
Categories: Vision / eye phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 605322 (gene)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Mode of inheritance: Autosomal recessive
Considered a defect: yes
Key variant known: yes
Year key variant first reported: 2009
Species-specific name: Multiple ocular defects; MOD
Species-specific symbol: MOD
Mapping: Abbasi et al. (2006) reported that they have mapped this locus to a region of BTA18 "that corresponds to a 6.3-Mb segment of human chromosome 16 and a 4.8-Mb segment of mouse chromosome 8. Several positional candidate genes, including FOXC2 and USP10, were identified in this region."
Molecular basis: Abbasi et al. (2009) reported that this disorder is due to a frameshift mutation resulting from the insertion of a single base in the gene for WFDC1.
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
Japanese Black, Japan (Cattle) (VBO_0004987).

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.
Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
