OMIA:002670-9913 : Lactoglobulin, beta in Bos taurus (taurine cattle)

In other species: ass (donkey) , indicine cattle (zebu)

Categories: Endocrine / exocrine gland phene (incl mammary gland)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: no

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: This phene includes references to studies involving gene edited or genetically modified organisms (GMO). PAEP is the HGNC approved gene symbol for beta-lactglobulin (BLG).

Genetic engineering: Yes - in addition to the occurrence of natural variants, 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
