Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 600733 (gene) , 125853 (trait) , 606392 (trait) , 260370 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: Lack of development of the pancreas

Species-specific name: This phene includes references to studies involving genetically modified organisms (GMO).

Species-specific description: Tanihara et al. (2020) "generated PDX1-modified pigs by the CRISPR/Cas9 system introduced into zygotes via electroporation and investigated the mosaicism, phenotypes, and inheritance of the resulting pigs. ... In conclusion, the frequency of the PDX1 mutation is presumed to relate to pancreas formation, and PDX1 mutant founder pigs generated from zygotes introduced to the CRISPR/Cas9 system can serve as providers of nonmosaics to contribute to medical research on diabetes mellitus."

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
