00324-A: Molecular Genetic Characterization of Canine Non-Syndromic Deafness
Grant Status: Closed
AbstractWe propose to characterize a form of canine inherited deafness. This deafness is classified as non-syndromic, neuroepithelial, and is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait in a large pedigree of dogs originally from Pointers. A genetic approach for the identification of the gene responsible for this canine disorder is now possible because of the recent availability of canine linkage and radiation hybrid maps and other genetic resources of sufficient resolution for comparative positional-candidate cloning of disease genes.
Help Future Generations of Dogs
Participate in canine health research by providing samples or by enrolling in a clinical trial. Samples are needed from healthy dogs and dogs affected by specific diseases.
