Abstract

German shepherd dogs (GSDs) are predisposed to an inherited motility disorder of the esophagus, termed congenital idiopathic megaesophagus (CIM), in which swallowing is ineffective and the esophagus is enlarged. Affected puppies are unable to properly pass food into their stomachs and consequently regurgitate their meals and show a failure to thrive, often leading to euthanasia. Here, we generated genome-wide SNP profiles for healthy and CIM-affected GSDs using the Illumina CanineHD BeadChip, containing 220,853 SNPs.
