Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: unknown

Species-specific description: Gignac et al. (2023) "examined the effects of human DVL1 mutations in chicken embryos and developing fly tissues. Our goal was to introduce the wild-type DVL1 using virus infection in the chicken ... . By carrying out these studies in a wildtype, endogenous Dvl/Dsh background, we could model the interaction between wild-type and mutant protein which is a crucial aspect of the human autosomal dominant RS genetics." 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
