Mutation in this gene causes a group of developmental abnormalities in the eyes. Horses may suffer from impaired vision, leading to abnormal behavior and an inability to perform.

PMEL17A gene test is recommended to be done for example before selling or buying a horse. It works as an assurance for the buyer that the horse has been checked for serious risk genes and associated hereditary illnesses. This test is also a good tool for breeding: you can make sure your horse is not carrying this harmful risk gene to pass on to its foals.

We will deliver the results within 3 weeks after receiving the sample.

The price for PMEL17A gene test is 100 € (VAT excluded).
