Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Cross-species summary: Affected animals die because of extreme susceptibility to infections, caused by an inability of white blood cells (leukocytes) to pass from the blood stream into infected tissue. This inability is due to the lack of a membrane glycoprotein called the leukocyte integrin beta-2 subunit or CD18.

Species-specific description: Sudhakar et al. (2023) investigated introgression of lethal alleles from taurine cattle into Bos taurus × Bos indicus and Bos indicus cattle in India: “Breed purity analysis confirmed inheritance of Bos taurus genes contributing to the presence of lethal mutant alleles like BLAD, Citrullinemia, HH1, and JH1 in apparently phenotypic Bos indicus animals.”

Genetic engineering: Unknown
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
