OMIA:002273-9685 : Curly coat, Ural Rex in Felis catus (domestic cat)
Categories: 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: 2020
Species-specific symbol: urx
Molecular basis: Manakhov et al. (2020) reported that "A LIPH genetic variant (LIPH :c.478_483del; LIPH:p.Ser160_Gly161del) was found [to be homozygous] in [all tested] Ural Rex cats with curly coats from Russia, but was absent in all other cat breeds tested."
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing

WARNING! Inclusion of a variant in this table does not automatically mean that it should be used for DNA testing. Anyone contemplating the use of any of these variants for DNA testing should examine critically the relevant evidence (especially in breeds other than the breed in which the variant was first described). If it is decided to proceed, the location and orientation of the variant sequence should be checked very carefully.
Since October 2021, OMIA includes a semiautomated lift-over pipeline to facilitate updates of genomic positions to a recent reference genome position. These changes to genomic positions are not always reflected in the ‘acknowledgements’ or ‘verbal description’ fields in this table.
