|Mode of Inheritance|
Curly coat is a common trait in many dog breeds. There are two known mutations in exon 2 of the Keratin 71 gene (KRT71) (exon 2 and 7) is detected which causes the curly coat phenotype. This test investigates the exon 7 mutation which is fixed in Curly Coat Retrievers and segregates in some other breeds.
Clinical signs include a curly coat.
There are some indications that the variant possibly represents a genetic risk factor for some forms of follicular dysplasia in dogs.
