OMIA:001764-30538 : Choanal atresia in Vicugna pacos (alpaca)

In other species: dog , domestic cat , ass (donkey) , horse , llama , sheep

Categories: Respiratory system phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 608911 (trait) , 214800 (trait)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Molecular basis: Investigation of a comparative candidate gene (CHD7) led to Reed et al. (2013) concluding that mutations in this gene "do not appear to be the primary cause of CA in alpacas".
