For the Rhodesian Ridgeback we have added two new tests to our webshop. The two tests can be ordered separately and are also part of the CombiBreed package for the Rhodesian Ridgeback (H575).
H931 Haemophilia A (factor VIII deficiency)
The disease is characterized by the lack or diminished activity of Factor VIII. Factor VIII is one of the largest coagulation factors and consists of a heavy and a light chain. In addition, the factor is present in the blood linked to the von Willebrand factor (vWF) in a non-covalent complex.
H932 Ventricular Arrthythmias and Sudden Death
Ventricular arrhythmias are abnormal heartbeats that originate in the lower heart chambers and causes the heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly. A single missense variant in the QIL1 gene was associated with the cardiac arrhythmia. The missense variant in the QIL1 gene causes mitochondrial cardiomyopathy characterized by cristae abnormalities and cardiac arrhythmias in a canine model.
