Health Summary

warn icon

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal inherited two variants that you should learn more about.

Macular Corneal Dystrophy, MCD

warn icon

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

This result should not impact Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal’s health but it could have consequences for siblings or other related dogs if they inherited two copies of the variant. We recommend discussing this result with their owners or breeders if you are in contact.

Impact on Breeding

Your dog carries this variant and will pass it on to ~50% of his offspring.

What is Macular Corneal Dystrophy, MCD?

This condition causes abnormal corneal accumulation of complex carbohydrates called glycosaminoglycans. The cornea is the surface of the eye.

Centronuclear Myopathy

warn icon

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

This result should not impact Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal’s health but it could have consequences for siblings or other related dogs if they inherited two copies of the variant. We recommend discussing this result with their owners or breeders if you are in contact.

Impact on Breeding

Your dog carries this variant and will pass it on to ~50% of his offspring.

What is Centronuclear Myopathy?

This muscle disorder is characterized by exercise intolerance, weight loss, and muscle wasting. CNM stems from a mutation in the PTPLA gene which codes for an enzyme important for a number of cellular processes. Loss of PTPLA function is thought to cause muscle fiber damage and death, leading to replacement of the muscle mass with scar tissue.

A1a

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal’s Haplogroup

A1a is the most common maternal lineage among Western dogs. This lineage traveled from the site of dog domestication in Central Asia to Europe along with an early dog expansion perhaps 10,000 years ago. It hung around in European village dogs for many millennia. Then, about 300 years ago, some of the prized females in the line were chosen as the founding dogs for several dog breeds. That set in motion a huge expansion of this lineage. It's now the maternal lineage of the overwhelming majority of Mastiffs, Labrador Retrievers and Gordon Setters. About half of Boxers and less than half of Shar-Pei dogs descend from the A1a line. It is also common across the world among village dogs, a legacy of European colonialism.

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal’s Haplotype

A2b

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal’s Haplogroup

A2b appears to have split a few times in succession, which means that some of the Central Asian male ancestors of this lineage went their separate ways before their respective Y chromosomes made their rounds. There is not much diversity in this lineage, meaning that it has only begun to take off recently. Two iconic breeds, the Dachshund and Bloodhound, represent this lineage well. Over half of Rottweilers are A2b, as are the majority of Labrador Retrievers and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. While A2a is restricted mostly to East Asia, this paternal line is also found among European breeds.

Hc.17

Ridge View's Ottertail Harbor Seal’s Haplotype

Part of the A2b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in mixed breed dogs.

A2b is found in the Daschund breed.
