OMIA 002229-9739 : Hypotrichosis, HR-related in Tursiops truncatus
Category: Integument (skin) phene
Links to MONDO diseases: No links.
Mendelian trait/disorder: yes
Considered a defect: no
Key variant known: yes
Year key variant first reported: 2013
Cross-species summary: Also known as Hairless
Molecular basis: Chen et al. (2013) reported evidence that the HR gene in cetaceans, including Tursiops truncatus, has degenerated into a non-functional pseudogene, which is consistent with the hairlessness of this species.
