Category: Ophthalmologic (Associated with the Eyes)

Gene: CNGB3 on Chromosome 29

Variant Detected: Base Substitution of G>A

Severity: Scale 3 has a moderate degree of severity, as it is not a fatal disease, though it can decrease the quality of life.

Mode of Inheritance: Autosomal Recessive

Test Overview: Cone degeneration (cd?) is an autosomal recessive canine disease that occurs naturally in the Alaskan Malamute and German Shorthaired Pointer breeds. It is phenotypically similar to human achromatopsia, a heterogeneous autosomal recessive disorder associated with three distinct loci. Both the canine disease and its human counterparts are characterized by day-blindness and absence of retinal cone function in adults.
