OMIA:002359-9823 : Resistance/susceptibility to classical swine fever virus (CSFV) in Sus scrofa (pig)

Categories: Immune system phene

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 607810 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific description: Xie et al. (2028): "antiviral small hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) were selected and then inserted at the porcine Rosa26 (pRosa26) locus via a CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knock-in strategy. Finally, anti-CSFV transgenic (TG) pigs were produced by somatic nuclear transfer (SCNT). Notably, in vitro and in vivo viral challenge assays further demonstrated that these TG pigs could effectively limit the replication of CSFV and reduce CSFV-associated clinical signs and mortality, and disease resistance could be stably transmitted to the F1-generation." Xie et al. (2020): "The RSAD2 exhibits antiviral activity against various DNA and RNA viruses. In this study, we successfully accomplished site-specific insertion of the porcine RSAD2 gene (pRSAD2) at the porcine ROSA26 (pROSA26) locus, generating pRSAD2 gene knock-in (pRSAD2-KI) PK-15 cells and porcine foetal fibroblasts (PFFs) via CRISPR/Cas9 technology. ... More importantly, we ultimately successfully produced a pRSAD2-KI pig that constitutively overexpressed the pRSAD2, viral challenge results indicated that fibroblasts isolated from the pRSAD2-KI pig reduced CSFV infection." These studies used genetically modified organisms (GMO).

Genetic engineering: Yes - in addition to the occurrence of natural variants, 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
