OMIA:002737-158456 : Green fluorescent protein, transgenic in Betta splendens (Siamese fighting fish)
Categories: Pigmentation phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown
Considered a defect: no
Species-specific description: Palmiotti et al. (2023) "used Tol2-mediated transgenesis to create fish with ubiquitous expression of GFP, and then developed a bicistronic plasmid with heart-specific expression of a red fluorescent protein to serve as a visible marker of successful transgenesis." This study involves genetically modified organisms (GMO).
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
