OMIA:002488-9615 : Parkinson disease, PARK7-related in Canis lupus familiaris (dog)

In other species: Rhesus monkey , pig

Categories: Nervous system phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 602533 (gene) , 606324 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: PARK7 is also known as DJ-1

Species-specific description: Kim et al. (2022) "generated two genome-edited dogs. Both genome-edited dogs had insertion-deletion mutations at the target [DJ-1 - also known as PARK7] locus, and DJ-1 expression was either downregulated or completely repressed." This study involves genetically modified organisms (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
