Congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS) is a heterogeneous subgroup of neuromuscular disorders. A causal mutation in the COLQ gene affects acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that terminates signal transduction at the neuromuscular junction.
Cats with Congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS) have a congenital muscle weakness. Cats show evidence of generalized muscle weakness, particularly following exertion, stress, or excitement. Characteristic positions as “dog-begging” or “chipmunk”, usually with their front legs resting on a convenient object can be shown. Within a few hours to a maximum of several weeks after birth, the characteristics that go with these genetic effects will become visible. Occasionally the symptoms become static.
