OMIA:001287-9615 : Keratitis in Canis lupus familiaris (dog)

In other species: horse

Categories: Vision / eye phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 148190 (trait) , 148200 (trait) , 148210 (trait) , 242150 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Mode of inheritance: Autosomal dominant

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Cross-species summary: inflammation of the cornea

Species-specific name: Chronic superficial keratitis

Species-specific symbol: CSK

Inheritance: Cheng et al. (2016): "evidence strongly suggests that CSK [in Greyhounds] is inherited as a simple Mendelian trait with dominant inheritance and should be amenable to gene mapping".

Breed: Greyhound (Dog) (VBO_0200638).
Breeds in which the phene has been documented. (If a likely causal variant has been documented for the phene, see the variant table breeds in which the variant has been reported).
