Above: (Left) King cheetah sightings have been restricted to a small (grey-colored) region that includes the Northeast corner of South Africa and parts of Botswana and Zimbawe. (Right) The K977Nfs110 mutation is completely linked to the king cheetah pattern under a model of autosomal recessive inheritance with complete penetrance. Genotype results are shown for 32 captive animals from the DeWildt pedigree (non-mutant, +, or mutant, fs), and reveal that the mutation was introduced into the DeWildt pedigree by 3 captured animals (1-3).
