OMIA 001071-9685 : Wilson disease in Felis catus
Asada et al. identified a second likely causal variant ATP7B in 2020: "Upon sequence analysis of genomic DNA samples obtained from the five cats with HCA [hepatic copper accumulation] ... p.T1297R and p.P550L were predicted to have high functional effects. The latter was common in two cats (cases 2 and 4). All SNVs identified herein were homozygous. The region containing p.T1297R was within the copper-transporting P-type ATPase domain and that containing p.P550L was within the copper-binding domain."Clinical features: Asada et al. (2019): "A 9‐month‐old intact crossbred female cat was presented with jaundice, intermittent anorexia and lethargy, increased hepatic enzyme activities, and hyperammonemia. Abdominal ultrasound and computed tomographic examinations determined that the liver had a rounded and irregular margin, and histopathological examination identified excessive accumulation of copper hepatocytes in the liver. Concentrations of both blood and urine copper were higher than in healthy cats." Prevalence: In a survey of 54 cats for whom "intraoperative liver tissue specimens" were available, Asada et al. (2020) reported 4 with "hepatic copper accumulation (HCA)", three of which had "single-nucleotide variations in ATP7B". Associated gene:

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.
