Coat Colour DILUTION

Test number: 8099Cats

Breed
All Cat Breeds .
Description

the dilute gene is responsible for the intensity of the coat colour by affecting the amount of pigments in the hair shaft. The pigment granules are clumped and distributed unevenly along the hair shaft, resulting in a clear colour.
 

The "dilute" phenotype in domestic cats affects both eumelanin and phaeomelanin pathway. The dilution of black results in a grey ("blue") phenotype, while dilute combined with orange appears as a cream colour, chocolate results in lilac, cinnamon results in fawn and orange in creme.

The dilute coat colour phenotype is caused by a single basepair deletion and is inherited in an autosomal recessive trait.

All coat colours and coat colour variants are inherited as an autosomal-recessive trait. The DNA test offers the detection of hidden colours or colour variants of these colours.
