OMIA:002426-10042 : Coat colour, dominant spot in Peromyscus maniculatus (North American deer mouse)

Categories: Pigmentation phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal dominant

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Inheritance: S/S homozygotes are likely embryonic lethal

Mapping: Shang et al. (2020) "conduct a candidate gene linkage analysis for the Dominant spot trait and determined that Dominant spot is linked to a region of chromosome 20 that contains a strong candidate gene, Sox10. During the linkage analysis, we found that the spot size varied quantitively in affected Peromyscus based on genetic background."

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