Inherited copper toxicosis in Bedlington terriers is a chronic progressive hepatic disease caused by an abnormal accumulation of copper due to genetic derangement in the biliary copper excretion pathway. In this study, we screened a group of Australian Bedlington terriers for a previously identified mutation, an exon 2 deletion in the COMMD1 gene. The DNA… CONTINUE READING
