CJM - The mutation that causes CJM is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait.
The disease only develops in individuals who inherit the mutated gene from both parents.
These individuals are referred to as P / P (positive / positive).
The carriers of the mutated gene, designated N / P (negative / positive), inherited the mutated gene from only one parent and have no clinical symptoms, but they pass the disease on to their offspring.
The mutated allele is discovered through genetic testing and further spread of this mutation can be prevented.
Last year it became possible to DNA test as the gene was located.
We send blood for research to Bern a long time ago and because of that also got the results on this new located mutation on all 14 dogs we send it in for. Cykodog Duane Duke and Like A Hurricane Julius Jarrett turned out to be carriers.
For some reason we didn't check Sally (Like A Hurricane Senorita Salome) before the mating as we thought she was also with that batch, but it was done before she was born.
So when we were lining up who needed testing from the youngsters, Cykodog Kiara, Comme un Ouragan Umbra Umora en Comme un Ouragan Unikum Uragan, we realized she wasn't tested and an extra test was send in.
Like A Hurricane Senorita Salome is now tested and she seems to be a carrier.
As due to sending the blood to Bern for testing a lot of ancestors are tested and this result gives us information about the not tested dogs.
Like A Hurricane Senorita Salome SALLY - carrier (Laboklin)
Dam: Cykodog Absinthe LYKA - free (Bern)
Stud: Like A Hurricane Lord Lambert NASH - not tested but as Like A Hurricane Senorita Salome is a carrier and her mom is tested free he must be a carrier
Parents of Like A Hurricane Lord Lambert
Dam: Pirro le Serviteur Puissant PEPPER - free (Bern)
Stud: Like A Hurricane Aiolos Adonis JEANOT - not tested but as Like A Hurricane Julius Jarret and Like A Hurricane Lord Lambert are carriers and at least Like A Hurricane Lord Lambert his mom mom is tested free he must be a carrier
Parents Like A Hurricane Aiolos Adonis JEANOT
Dam: Umi du Bois des Trembles - free (Bern)
Stud: Aha van Joefarm ACE - not tested but as Like A Hurricane Aiolos Adonis is a carrier and his mom is tested free he must be a carrier
