Health Summary

warn icon

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

warn icon

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy’s ALT activity could be evidence of liver damage, even if it is within normal limits by standard ALT reference ranges.

What is ALT Activity?

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is a clinical tool that can be used by veterinarians to better monitor liver health. This result is not associated with liver disease. ALT is one of several values veterinarians measure on routine blood work to evaluate the liver. It is a naturally occurring enzyme located in liver cells that helps break down protein. When the liver is damaged or inflamed, ALT is released into the bloodstream.

Through Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplogroup

A1e

Haplotype

A226/A547

Map

A1e

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy’s Haplogroup

This female lineage likely stems from some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs starting about 15,000 years ago. It seemed to be a fairly rare dog line for most of dog history until the past 300 years, when the lineage seemed to “explode” out and spread quickly. What really separates this group from the pack is its presence in Alaskan village dogs and Samoyeds. It is possible that this was an indigenous lineage brought to the Americas from Siberia when people were first starting to make that trip themselves! We see this lineage pop up in overwhelming numbers of Irish Wolfhounds, and it also occurs frequently in popular large breeds like Bernese Mountain Dogs, Saint Bernards and Great Danes. Shetland Sheepdogs are also common members of this maternal line, and we see it a lot in Boxers, too. Though it may be all mixed up with European dogs thanks to recent breeding events, its origins in the Americas makes it a very exciting lineage for sure!

A226/A547

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy’s Haplotype

Part of the A1e haplogroup, the A226/A547 haplotype occurs most frequently in Doberman Pinschers, Australian Shepherds, and Border Collies.

Haplogroup

C

Haplotype

H5a.3

Map

C

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy’s Haplogroup

C is a relatively rare paternal lineage. The dog populations which bear C are a disparate bunch. The Akita and Shiba Inu are Japanese breeds, the former of which seems to have roots in the Jomon population of hunter-gatherers which were present in the islands of Japan before the ancestors of the modern Japanese arrived. The New Guinea Singing Dog, Samoyed, and Alaska Malamute are all disparate breeds that also represent the C lineage. One village dog from Peru also bore this lineage. This wide distribution and diversity suggest C is not a recently expanded lineage. It likely represents a canid lineage which diversified sometime around the Last Glacial Maximum, when the dogs of Siberia and Oceania split off and went their separate ways.

H5a.3

Lusjkaya Ziggy Oystenkov or short Ziggy’s Haplotype

Part of the C haplogroup, the H5a.3 haplotype occurs most commonly in Samoyeds, Eurasiers and Finnish Lapphunds.

The Shiba Inu descends from this relativey rare haplogroup.
