Phenotype: Camarillo White is a dominant white coat color characterized by a completely white coat, mane, and tail.
Mode of Inheritance: Autosomal dominant
Alleles: N = Normal or non-Camarillo White, CW = Camarillo White
Breeds appropriate for testing: Camarillo White Horse
Explanation of Results:
- Horses with N/N genotype will not be Camarillo White and cannot transmit a Camarillo White variant to their offspring.
- Horses with N/CW genotype will be Camarillo White. They may transmit the Camarillo White variant to 50% of their offspring. Matings with N/N genotype will result in a 50% chance of producing a Camarillo White foal.
- Horses with CW/CW genotype have not yet been observed and are likely embryonic lethal.
