Mendelian Inheritance in Man

A database begun in the early 1960s by Dr VA McKusick as a catalog of mendelian traits and disorders. 12 paper editions were published between 1966 and 1998. The online version, OMIM, was created in the mid-1980s and went live on the web in 1995.

PFIC3 (ABCB4 disease, OMIM #602347) is caused by mutations in both alleles of the ABCB4/MDR3 gene that encode phospholipid transporter MDR3, expressed in the canalicular (apical) membrane of hepatocytes [26].

(5) Although the only culprit in this disorder is CLNC1, different mutations in this gene can cause autosomaldominant (Thomsen disease, OMIM 160800) or recessive trait (recessive generalized myotonia or Becker myotonia, OMIM 255700).
Digitotalar dysmorphism (DTD; OMIM #126050) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterised by congenital fixed flexion deformities of the digits and 'rocker-bottom' feet due to a vertical position of the talus.
