Breed Affected: Domestic Shorthair
Cats have a defective lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency. Symptoms include reduced body mass, growth rates and an increased number of stillbirths.
Affected cats with chylomicronemia share many phenotypic features with human lipoprotein lipase (LPL) deficiency. Biochemical analysis reveals that these cats do have defective LPL catalytic activity and have a clinical phenotype very similar to human LPL deficiency. Symptoms include reduced body mass, growth rates and an increased rate of stillbirths.
Metabolic - Associated with the enzymes and metabolic processes of cells
