Presentation Transcript
  • Similar format to other tests
  • Today's lecture included
  • Lecture should be included on web site by this pm
  • Thursdays lab in Kildee pavilion
genetics of disease
Genetics of Disease
  • Modes of Inheritance
    • Dominant
    • Recessive
    • Complex
genetics of disease3
Genetics of Disease
  • Modes of Inheritance
    • Dominant
      • Late onset diseases
    • Recessive
    • Complex
dog and cat genetic diseases
Dog and Cat Genetic Diseases
  • Mechanism of genetic disease
    • Mutations
      • Random and spontaneous
    • Mutations become consentrated in the population over many generations
      • Two mechanisms
      • Founder effect
      • Popular sire or dam effect
founder effect
Founder Effect
  • Often a missused term
  • A disease allele is concentrated in a small or new population (foundation population) at a higher relative frequency from the originating population
  • Original population, 1/1,000
  • New popluation 1/10
  • Example: Angus cattle in Australia and New Zealand and alpha-mannosidosis
  • Portuguese Water Dogs (15 animals founded the population)
  • Initial development of breeds was likely foundation event
popular sire or dam effect
Popular Sire or Dam Effect
  • Dog and cat fancy breeding often involves heavy use of popular sires or dams
  • This effectively concentrates desirable alleles in the population
  • If the heavily used animal is carrying a mutant allele, it will also increase that allele in the population
founder and popular effect
Founder and Popular Effect
  • Founder effect is often a missused term
  • Most common recessive genetic diseases are the result of:
    • Popular sire or dam effect
    • Popular sire or dam effect and founder effect
pedigree example

Pedigree Example

Founder effect compounded by popular sire/dam effect

how old is a mutation
How old is a mutation
  • Difficult to say
  • If it is a common allele, one assumes not a recent mutation
  • Serious or biomedically important diseases receive scrutiny not inline with being clinically common conditions
    • Example is mucopolysaccharidosis type VII in German shepherd dogs
    • First seen in mixed-breed dog
    • 25 years later published case in German shepherd dog
age of mutations in a population
Age of Mutations in a Population
  • Mutant alleles seen in different, but closely related breeds of dogs
  • Examples
    • West Highland white and Cairn terriers
      • Krabbe disease (globoid cell luekodystrophy)
    • German shorthair and wirehair pointers
      • Von Willebrand disease
    • Assuming no mixing of breeds, mutations occurred before breeds were formed in mid-late 19th century
recessive genetic disease in dogs and cats
Recessive Genetic Disease in Dogs and Cats
  • Dozens of genetic disease in dogs and cats for which genetic tests exist
  • Involve serious inherited recessive diseases of various body systems
    • Vision
    • Lysosomal Storage Diseases
    • Hematological Disorders
commercial dna based testing
Commercial DNA Based Testing
  • Testing for diseases
  • Testing for traits
  • Testing for parentage
  • University based, single tests
    • Usually developer of tests
  • University based, multiple tests and services
  • Commercial laboratories, University spin-offs
  • Commercial laboratories, usually little to no development
  • Price $75-$150
  • Who you gonna call?
vet gen coat color tests
Vet Gen Coat Color Tests
  • The B and b alleles of the dog
    • Three mutations in Tyrosinase Related Protein-1 (TRP1) involved in the chocolate coat color in “bb” Labrador retrievers (and dogs of many other breeds).
  • The E and e alleles of the dog
    • One mutation in the the Melanocortin-1 Receptor (MC1R) gene that causes the the yellow coat color in “ee” dogs.
lysosomal storage disease in veterinary patients
Lysosomal Storage Disease in Veterinary Patients
  • Documented in virtually every major veterinary species except the horse
  • Usually severe disease seen in the young animal
  • At least 21 different forms identified in over two dozen breeds of dogs and cats
  • Mixed breed dogs and cats also documented
  • Molecular defect known in at least 20 cases
  • Documentation of certain breeds affected with more than one form of lysosomal storage disease (English Springer Spaniel (2), and Siamese Cat (3))

canine scientific investigation csi
Canine Scientific Investigation(CSI)
  • DNA Sample collection and submission
  • Blood
    • Requires a veterinarian to collect and ship
    • What kind of blood sample?
  • Cytology brushes
    • Can be collected by owner
dna testing results
DNA Testing Results
  • Carrier versus Normal versus Affected
  • Allows carriers to be used safely
  • Should carrier animals be continued to breed?
  • How common are carrier animals in some of these disorders?
dna tests and breeding
DNA Tests and Breeding
  • Carrier animals can be safely bred, and in some cases, the genetic health of the breed may depend on using such animals
  • Carrier rates can reach over 20% in some breeds and some diseases.
