Missense mutation in PFKM associated with muscle-type phosphofructokinase deficiency in the Wachtelhund dog
Gultekin, G. Inal; Raj, K.; Lehman, S.; Hillström, Anna; Giger, U.
Despite their similar phenotypic appearance and use for hunting. Wachtelhunds and English Springer Spaniels are not thought to have common ancestors. Thus, it is not surprising that different mutations are responsible for PFK deficiency in these breeds. Knowledge of the molecular basis of PFK deficiency in Wachtelhunds provides an opportunity to screen and control the spread of this deleterious trait. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
