American minks with different genotypes containing the Aleutian coat color allele in the homozygous state, including the single recessive Aleutian (a/a); double recessive sapphire (a/a p/p) and lavender (m/m a/a); triple recessive violet (m/m a/a p/p); and dominant-recessive cross sapphire (S/+ a/a p/p), sapphire leopard (SK/+ a/a p/p), and shadow sapphire (SH/+ a/a p/p) minks, as well as American minks without the Aleutian allele, including the standard (+/+); single recessive silver-blue (p/p… Expand
Heterozygosity for mutations affecting coat pigmentation in the American mink (Neovison vison) enhances structural stability of adrenal cortex under stress conditions
TLDR
Although the authors observed single destructive changes in the adrenal cortex under stress conditions, they were much less profound than in the homozygous animals, which may be related to the broader range of morphological adaptation in the heterozygotes, which gives them the possibility of more significant enlargement of the secreting zone to provide for its adequate functioning.

Bioactive effect of the preparation biostyl on the reproductive function of different genotypes of American mink
TLDR
The different role of coat color mutations in the American mink on the per os effect of the biologically active preparation Biostyl was shown and a significant decrease in the body mass of newborn experimental sapphire kits as compared to control group in a sex-specific manner was registered.

Pleiotropic effects of coat colour-associated mutations in humans, mice and other mammals.
The characterisation of the pleiotropic effects of coat colour-associated mutations in mammals illustrates that sensory organs and nerves are particularly affected by disorders because of the sharedExpand
Variability of a cytochrome b region in different chromosome races and populations of the common shrew Sorex araneus L., 1758
TLDR
The lack of a correlation between the genetic and geographic distances and also population structurization of the species was revealed and a scenario of colonization of the postglacial territories by females of one or several close matrilines with subsequent rapid subdivision of the population into independent populations is discussed. Expand
Intra-species structuring in the common shrew Sorex araneus (Lipotyphla: Soricidae) in European Russia: morphometric variability could give evidence of limitation of interpopulation migration
TLDR
The shape of the skull, mandible, and first lower molar in 10 geographical samples from four chromosomal races of two karyotypic groups were studied using geometric morphometrics and the significant difference between populations within a race was regarded as evidence of limitation of interpopulation migration.

Outbreaks of Aleutian mink disease in farmed mink (Neovison vison) in Denmark: molecular characterization by partial NS1 gene sequencing
TLDR
It is suggested that foxes have more diverse bacterial microbiota than the mink (mean Shannon species diversity index 2.7 vs. 2.0; P < 0.001) and there were farm-specific differences in the bacterial microbiota of mink. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that foxes have more diverse bacterial microbiota than the mink (mean Shannon species diversity index 2.7 vs. 2.0; P < 0.001) and there were farm-specific differences in the bacterial microbiota of mink. Expand
Pooling of faecal samples for quantitative virus diagnostics by real-time PCR
TLDR
It is suggested that foxes have more diverse bacterial microbiota than the mink (mean Shannon species diversity index 2.7 vs. 2.0; P < 0.001) and there were farm-specific differences in the bacterial microbiota of mink. Expand

Effects of monorecessive and double recessive mutations affecting coat color on the monoamine content of the brain of the American mink (Mustela vison Schreber, 1777)
TLDR
The homozigosity for two coat color loci in double recessive pearl minks (k/k p/p) significantly decreases the noradrenaline and serotonin contents of the hypothalamus of the American mink. Expand
Effect of coat color genes on the hair pigmentation morphology in the american mink (Mustela vison Schr. L.)
TLDR
The hair pigmentation pattern specific for each coat color form and its difference from the standard coat color of the American mink has been determined and the possible mechanisms of the phenotypic expression of the nonallelic genes contributing to the described compound color forms are discussed.

TLDR
It is suggested that genes controlling coat color have a pleiotropic effect on sexual behavior in males and the endocrine function of testicles mediated by a putative change in the metabolism of brain neurotransmitters, substrates of MAOs A and B. Expand

Black crystal, a new mutant of coat color pattern occurring in the American mink in the course of selection for domestic behavior, is described. A salient feature of the mutation is the appearance ofExpand
Interspecific genetic complementation analysis with fibroblasts from humans and four species of animals with Chediak-Higashi syndrome.
TLDR
A lack of complementation of human CHS with cat CHS and humanCHS with mink CHS fibroblasts indicates that the disease is homologous in these species. Expand
[Effect of color mutation on the function of the adrenal cortex in chronic feed stress in American mink].
TLDR
It was shown that minks heterozygous for color mutant alleles studied were more resistant to the stressors, associated with genetically mediated peculiarities of the action of hypophysial adrenocortical system which is characterized by more adequate reactivity towards stimuli acting. Expand

Clinical, molecular, and cell biological aspects of Chediak-Higashi syndrome.
TLDR
Because the beige mouse demonstrates many characteristics similar to those of human CHS patients, including dilution of coat color, recurrent infections, and the presence of giant granules, it is considered the animal homologue of CHS. Expand
Complementation analysis of Chediak-Higashi Syndrome: The same gene may be responsible for the defect in all patients and species
TLDR
Fusion of normal fibroblasts to Chediak fibroBLasts complements the Chediac disorder, restoring normal lysosome size and distribution and suggesting that the same gene product is defective in humans, mice, and mink. Expand
