Feline Coat Length

Long hair in cats is a recessive trait. The gene for fibroblast growth factor 5 (FGF5) has been identified as the gene involved, and four different mutations have been identified that can cause long hair. One of these is commonly found in nearly all breeds and the other three are limited to a small number of breeds. Any combination of two of these mutations will result in long hair, so the test offered here is for all four.
