Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD1)

Feline polycystic kidney disease (PKD1) is a heritable form of polycystic kidney disease commonly seen in Persians and cats with Persian ancestry. Affected cats develop cysts on their kidneys, which often leads to renal failure at a later stage.

AB Blood Group in Domestic Cat Breeds

The AB system is the major blood group system in domestic cats. The common blood types are A and B, and a third rare type "AB" is also known. These blood groups are genetically determined.

Agouti

The agouti signaling protein interacts with the melanocortin 1 receptor to switch between black and red pigments, creating a banding pattern in individual hairs. Mutations in the agouti signaling protein gene (ASIP) prevent this switch from occurring, resulting in hairs of uniform color.

Albino

The feline albino mutation is a rare mutation that produces a white coat with blue eyes, and is recessive to the sepia and Siamese mutations.

Amber Coloration in Norwegian Forest Cats

In Norwegian Forest Cats, a recessive mutation in the melanocortin 1 receptor gene leads to the gradual replacement of black pigment in the coat with yellow pigment, producing the amber coloration.

Burmese Head Defect

Burmese head defect (BHD), or congenital frontonasal dysplasia, is an inherited defect found in Burmese cats that is characterized by improper development and subsequent malformation of the skull and facial features.

Burmese Hypokalemia

Burmese hypokalemia is an inherited disorder found in Burmese cats that is characterized by skeletal muscle weakness that can cause affected cats to have trouble walking and holding their heads correctly.

Burmese Russet Coat Color

Burmese russet coat color is a coat color that develops with age and is characterized by progressive amounts of red pigment on the head and dorsal surfaces.

Cat Ancestry

The Cat Ancestry test traces the lineage of your cat and provides results for common physical traits of coat color, fur length, and coat type.

Charcoal Pattern in Bengals

Charcoal Bengals sport an unusual coat marking of a darker face mask and dark thick dorsal stripe ("cape"). This “charcoal” pattern is produced by the combination of a domestic cat non-agouti variant and an Asian Leopard Cat agouti variant.

Colorpoint Restriction

Cats with colored 'points' have genetic mutations associated with temperature-sensitive pigment production. Pigment production is reduced in warmer areas of the body, leading to darker pigmentation in the cat's cooler extremities (paws, ears, etc.)

Cornish Rex Coat

Cornish Rex cats have short, soft, curly coats inherited in an autosomal recessive fashion. This trait is fixed in the breed.

Dilute

Dilute is an autosomal recessive trait that causes clumping and uneven distribution of pigment granules in the hair shaft, producing dilution of all coat colors.

Gloves (Birman – White Feet)

Birman cats have clearly defined white feet ("gloves") as part of their breed standard. This characteristic gloving is caused by a variant in the KIT gene and is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.

GM2 Gangliosidosis in Burmese

GM2 gangliosidosis is a degenerative, fatal neurological disease characterized by severe muscle tremors and loss of motor control.

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) in Ragdolls

Cats affected by hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) are at risk of sudden cardiac death. In Ragdoll cats, a breed-specific mutation has been found to be associated with increased risk for HCM.

Korat GM1 Gangliosidosis

Korat GM1 gangliosidosis causes progressive neurologic dysfunction and premature death in Korat cats.

Korat GM2 Gangliosidosis

Korat GM2 gangliosidosis causes progressive neurologic dysfunction and premature death in Korat cats. Disease progression is more rapid in GM2 than GM1.

Long Hair

Four mutations that produce long-haired coats in domestic cats have been identified in a single gene. Three of the mutations are fairly breed specific, while the fourth is present in all long-haired cat breeds and crossbreds.

Mucopolysaccharidosis VI (MPS VI)

Mucopolysaccharidosis VI is an inherited lysosomal storage disease that has mild and severe forms. Signs may include retarded growth, wide faces with shortened noses, reduced flexibility, and degenerative joint disease.

Parentage/Genetic Marker Report

This DNA-based parentage test uses microsatellite marker analysis to compare the DNA profile of an offspring to the profiles of possible parents.

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD1)

Feline polycystic kidney disease (PKD1) is a heritable form of polycystic kidney disease commonly seen in Persians and cats with Persian ancestry. Affected cats develop cysts on their kidneys, which often leads to renal failure at a later stage.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA rdAc) (Abyssinian)

This progressive retinal atrophy is an inherited late-onset blindness condition seen in Abyssinian, Somali, and some Ocicat and other breeds. Affected cats have normal vision at birth that slowly degenerates to blindness.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA Rdy) (Abyssinian)

This progressive retinal atrophy is an inherited, rare form of early-onset blindness seen in Abyssinian and Somali cats. Affected cats have retarded development and degeneration of photoreceptor cells, which leads to blindness by 7 weeks of age.

Scottish Fold

The Scottish Fold breed produces cats with both straight and folded ears. A single copy of the fold mutation produces the breed's characteristic folded ears, and cats with two copies are prone to more extreme health problems affecting cartilage and bone.

Selkirk Rex Coat

The Selkirk Rex breed has curled hair that can be short or long. A single copy of the variant that causes the Selkirk Rex coat produces wavy hair, and two copies produce a tighter curl as well as a slender body type with long ears.

Sphynx and Devon Rex Coats

The Devon Rex breed produces a curly coat and the Sphynx breed is nearly hairless. The nearly hairless coat of the Sphynx breed is recessive to normal coat, and the curly coat of the Devon Rex breed is recessive to the hairless Sphynx coat.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) in Maine Coon Cats

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is characterized by progressive instability with unsteady gait and posture abnormalities due to loss of motor neurons in the lower spinal cord and atrophy of muscles in the hind limbs.
