OMIA:001793-9685 : Resistance/susceptibility to feline infectious peritonitis in Felis catus

Categories: Immune system phene

Links to MONDO diseases: No links.

Mendelian trait/disorder: no

Mode of inheritance: Multifactorial

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific symbol: FIP

Mapping: Golovko et al. (2013) conducted a GWAS by genotyping "38 Birman cats that died of FIP and 161 healthy cats from breeders in Denmark and USA . . . using 63K SNPs distributed across the feline genome". Four QTL were identified.


Note: the references are listed in reverse chronological order (from the most recent year to the earliest year), and alphabetically by first author within a year.
