Molecular basis: By cloning and sequencing a very likely comparative candidate gene (based on the homologous human and bovine disorder), Leipprandt et al. (1996) detected a single base deletion in the caprine MANBA (mannosidase, beta A, lysosomal) gene, resulting in a frameshift and hence premature termination, yielding a deduced peptide of 481 amino acids, compared to the normal peptide of 879 amino acids. The authors designed a PCR genotyping test which they used with success to distinguish the three genotypes at this locus.

By default, variants are sorted chronologically by year of publication, to provide a historical perspective. Readers can re-sort on any column by clicking on the column header. Click it again to sort in a descending order. To create a multiple-field sort, hold down Shift while clicking on the second, third etc relevant column headers.

WARNING! Inclusion of a variant in this table does not automatically mean that it should be used for DNA testing. Anyone contemplating the use of any of these variants for DNA testing should examine critically the relevant evidence (especially in breeds other than the breed in which the variant was first described). If it is decided to proceed, the location and orientation of the variant sequence should be checked very carefully.

Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
