Project Title

Concept for optimizing population management in the Rhenish German Coldblood (PSSM1)

Project description

Polysaccharide storage myopathy type 1 (PSSM1) is a genetic disease that can lead to impaired skeletal muscle metabolism in affected horses. The aim is to investigate the carrier frequency of the gene mutation causal for PSSM1 in the Rhenish-German Coldblood in Saxony, which is classified as endangered, and to analyze the effects on performance parameters and health of the horses. In order to make a well-founded recommendation on the breeding use of carrier animals and to enable breeders to make optimized mating decisions, the active breeding population will be comprehensively genotyped.
