- Differential gene expression of TRPM1, the potential cause of congenital stationary night blindness and coat spotting patterns (LP) in the Appaloosa horse (Equus caballus)Rebecca R Bellone
Department of Biology, University of Tampa, Tampa, FL 33606, USA
Genetics 179:1861-70. 2008..Decreased expression of TRPM1 in the eye and the skin may alter bipolar cell signaling as well as melanocyte function, thus causing both CSNB and LP in horses...
