SCID is a lethal genetic autosomal recessive disorder that has been observed in humans, dogs, mice, and horses. Affected animals are incapable of generating specific antigens for immune responses needed to protect them from infectious diseases. The frequency of affected recessive allele varies in different regions so that the outcome of normal breeding with carriers of recessive alleles is differently distributed. Little information is available for SCID carriers in Iranian horses to prevent… CONTINUE READING
