Health Summary

warn icon

Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith inherited one variant that you should learn more about.

Early Onset Adult Deafness, EOAD

warn icon

Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

This variant should not impact Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith’s health. This variant is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner, meaning that a dog needs two copies of the variant to show signs of this condition. Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith is unlikely to develop this condition due to this variant because she only has one copy of the variant.

Impact on Breeding

Your dog carries this variant and will pass it on to ~50% of her offspring. You can email breeders@embarkvet.com to discuss with a genetic counselor how the genotype results should be applied to a breeding program.

What is Early Onset Adult Deafness, EOAD?

This form of Early Onset Adult Deafness is due to a variant in the EPS8L2 gene which likely causes degradation of inner ear hair cells.

Through Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace her mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that her ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplogroup

A1d

Haplotype

A359/A424

Map

A1d

Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith’s Haplogroup

This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly. As a result, many modern breed and village dogs from the Americas, Africa, through Asia and down into Oceania belong to this group! This widespread lineage is not limited to a select few breeds, but the majority of Rottweilers, Afghan Hounds and Wirehaired Pointing Griffons belong to it. It is also the most common female lineage among Papillons, Samoyeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Considering its occurrence in breeds as diverse as Afghan Hounds and Samoyeds, some of this is likely ancient variation. But because of its presence in many modern European breeds, much of its diversity likely can be attributed to much more recent breeding.

A359/A424

Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith’s Haplotype

Part of the A1d haplogroup, the A359/A424 haplotype occurs most frequently in American Pit Bull Terriers, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and American Foxhounds.

The vast majority of Rottweilers have the A1d haplogroup.

The Paternal Haplotype reveals a dog’s deep ancestral lineage, stretching back thousands of years to the original domestication of dogs.

Are you looking for information on the breeds that Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown.

Paternal Haplotype is determined by looking at a dog’s Y-chromosome—but not all dogs have Y-chromosomes!

Why can’t we show Paternal Haplotype results for female dogs?

All dogs have two sex chromosomes. Female dogs have two X-chromosomes (XX) and male dogs have one X-chromosome and one Y-chromosome (XY). When having offspring, female (XX) dogs always pass an X-chromosome to their puppy. Male (XY) dogs can pass either an X or a Y-chromosome—if the puppy receives an X-chromosome from its father then it will be a female (XX) puppy and if it receives a Y-chromosome then it will be a male (XY) puppy. As you can see, Y-chromosomes are passed down from a male dog only to its male offspring.

Since Kuanzia Kani Akilah Faith is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
