White Pattern Panel 2

Description

Horse with white patterning

The White Pattern Panel 2 bundles together all of the white coat color/pattern diagnostic tests that the VGL offers.

Panel can be purchased on MyVGL. See below for pricing and list of specific tests included in panel.

Note: Gray test included in this panel only detects presence or absence of gray. The panel report does not provide the number of copies of the gray gene.

Tests in This Panel

Gray

The gray gene causes progressive depigmentation of the hair, often resulting in a color that is almost completely white by 6-8 years of age.

Tobiano

Tobiano is a white spotting pattern characterized by white on the body that crosses the topline.

Lethal White Overo (LWO)

Lethal white overo (LWO) is a genetic disorder that results from two copies of the version of the gene causing the frame overo coat color pattern.

Sabino 1

Sabino is a white spotting pattern that is characterized by white markings on legs often accompanied by white ticking or roaning of the midsection and a blaze on the face.

Splashed White Mutations – SW1, SW2, SW3, SW4, SW5, and SW6

Splashed white is a variable white spotting pattern characterized by a broad blaze, extended white markings on the legs, variable white spotting on the belly, and often blue eyes. Six mutations in two different genes have been shown to cause the splashed white pattern.

Leopard Complex & Congenital Stationary Night Blindness

Leopard complex or appaloosa spotting is a white pattern in horses characterized by a variable amounts of white in the coat with or without pigmented leopard spots. Horses homozygous for this variant have an ocular condition known as congenital stationary night blindness.

Appaloosa Pattern-1 (PATN1)

Appaloosa Pattern-1 is a modifier of the leopard complex spotting (LP) and controls the amount of white in the coat pattern.

Dominant White Mutations – W5, W10, W20, and W22

Dominant white is a variable white spotting pattern caused by many different mutations in the KIT gene. The VGL tests for the four most common mutations known as W5, W10, W20, and W22. Homozygosity for W5, W10, or W22 is thought to be non-viable.
