Narcolepsy (canarc1 Dachshund)

With narcolepsy (canarc-1), dogs suffer cataplectic episodes, a sudden onset of temporary flaccid paralysis of individual muscle groups or the entire skeletal musculature. Triggers are excitatory events or fright. Affected dogs also show unusual fatigue during the day.

This genetic variant of the disease occurs in the dachshund. The inheritance is autosomal recessive.

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 1 (NCL1 Dachshund)

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 1 (NCL1) is a metabolism-induced neurodegenerative disease in Dachshunds caused by an alteration of a single base pair in exon 8 of the TPP1 gene. In this disease, a waste product of cell metabolism (ceroid lipofuscin, CL), is stored in the cells and is not metabolised further. CL accumulates in the nerve cells of the retina and brain. Affected animals therefore show symptoms such as visual disorders, balance disorders and later completely disoriented behaviour and physical degeneration.

The inheritance is autosomal recessive.

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 2 (NCL2 Dachshund)

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 2 (NCL2) is a metabolism-induced neurodegenerative disease caused by a deletion of a single base pair in exon 4 of the TPP1 gene. In this disease, the waste product of cell metabolism, ceroid lipofuscin, is stored in the cells and is not metabolised further. This accumulates in the nerve cells of the retina and brain. Affected animals therefore show symptoms such as visual disorders, balance disorders and later completely disoriented behaviour and physical degeneration.

The disease occurs in Dachshunds. The inheritance is autosomal recessive.

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 5 (NCL5 Golden Retriever)

Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 5 (NCL5) is a metabolism-induced neurodegenerative disease caused by a deletion of two base pairs in exon 4 of the CLN5 gene. In this disease, the waste product of cell metabolism, ceroid lipofuscin, is stored in the cells and is not metabolised further. This accumulates in the nerve cells of the retina and brain. Affected animals therefore show symptoms such as visual disorders, balance disorders and later completely disoriented behaviour and physical degeneration.

The disease occurs in Golden Retrievers. The inheritance is autosomal recessive.
