8 - The Bully Whippet

from Part III - Dogs

Summary

The abnormal animal featured here is a type of whippet that has twice as much muscle mass as the normal breed due to a mutation. Similar mutations have been found in cattle, horses, and people. In order to see how this can happen, we discuss how genes control tissue growth in general via the insulin pathway.
