There is no effective treatment.

It is found in Throughbreds.

Genetic Codes for GT:

N/N Normal Cannot produce an affected foal

N/gt1 Horse is a carrier of GT, and can passto to approximately 50% of any offspring. If bred to another N/gt1 carrier, approximately 25% of the offspring will be normal, 50% will be carriers, and 25% will be affected.

N/gt2 Horse is a carrier of GT, and can pass the allele on to approximately 50% of any offspring. If bred to another N/gt2 carrier, approximately 25% of the offspring will be normal, 50% will be carriers, and 25% will be affected.

gt1/gt1 The horse is affected with GT. If bred to a normal animal, 100% of the offspring will be carriers. If bred to a N/gt1 carrier, 50% of the offspring will be carriers and 50% will be affected.

gt2/gt2 The horse is affected with GT. If bred to a normal animal, 100% of the offspring will be carriers. If bred to a N/gt2 carrier, 50% of the offspring will be carriers and 50% will be affected.

gt1/gt2 The horse is affected with GT. If bred to a normal animal, 100% of the offspring will be carriers. If bred to a N/gt1 or N/gt2 carrier, 50% of the offspring will be carriers and 50% will be affected.

Recommendations:
– Carriers may be bred to normal animals (N/gt1/gt2 x N/N) without any risk of producing affected offspring. The offspring should also be tested before breeding to determine if they are carriers or normal.
– Breeding two carriers (N/gt1/gt2 x N/gt1/gt2) is not recommended due to the possibility of 25% of the offspring being affected.
