OMIA:002686-9483 : Colour vision, deficiency in Callithrix jacchus (white-tufted-ear marmoset)
Categories: Vision / eye phene
Possibly relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) (MIM number): 303800 (trait)
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Mode of inheritance: X-linked
Considered a defect: yes
Key variant known: no
Cross-species summary: Dichromatic colour vision; colorblindness; colour blind; color vision deficiency; CVD
Species-specific description: Yeh et al. (2023): "New-world primates such as the marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) show polymorphism for the middle- to long-wavelength sensitive cone pigments. Each X-chromosome carries a gene for only one of three possible pigments. All males are thus dichromats, but some females will be trichromats."
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
