Disease
Ticked is a coat pattern in the cat in which the individual hairs have banding, but the cat itself has no patterning. Two different variants on the DKK4 gene can lead to the expression of the phenotype. To be able to express the alleles of the ticked locus, the cat must have the genotype AA or Aa at the A-locus. The tabby locus can only be expressed in cats which are N/N at the ticked locus.
