SUMMARYSLC45A2 mutations are responsible for several dilution phenotypes in horses, including cream, pearl, and sunshine. We sequenced the SLC45A2 gene in a horse that possessed a diluted coat color but tested negative for any known dilution genotypes. We identified a novel homozygous missense mutation in ECA21: SLC45A2:c.305G>A; p.(Arg102Gln) which we have named snowdrop (Csno). The snowdrop dilution is autosomal recessive and dilutes both red and black pigment in the homozygous state,doi:10.1101/851246 fatcat:gqwbxy3tlnf2vjxggg4rgjbrrm
