Dominant Spotting in ee and e(f) Coat Colours
The extension of yellow gene (e) interacts oddly with dominant spotting, also recessive genes on the C locus and the presence of e(f) can cause further variability to the overall coat.
Lethal Spotting & Extreme White Spotting Coat Colours
Recently in Europe, gerbils with extreme white spotting have appeared. Their coats are in excess of 90% white, and very little of the base coat remains. These types of extreme white markings are the result of combining the two known spotting genes, Dominant Spot & Semi-dominant Lethal spotting, together.
