OMIA:001916-9823 : Familial adenomatous polyposis in Sus scrofa (pig)

In other species: dog

Categories: Neoplasm

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 175100 (trait) , 611731 (gene)

Links to relevant human diseases in MONDO:

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: Genetically-modifed organism; GMO. This entry refers to "transgenic" pigs.

Molecular basis: By gene targeting, Flisikowska et al. (2012) created pigs with this disorder due to translational stop signals at codons 1061 and 1311 in the APC gene orthologous to causal mutations for the same disorder in humans.

Genetic engineering: Yes - variants have been created artificially, e.g. by genetic engineering or gene editing
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
