Heterozygous hypomorphic variants cause hyper-IgE syndrome.
Heterozygous gain-of-function variants cause immune dysregulation and/or combined immunodeficiency, not always of early onset

Eleanor Williams (Genomics England Curator)

Mode of Inheritance: OMIM has only autosomal dominant, and I can find no evidence for autosomal recessive, but GRID has marked this gene as both AD and AR so leaving the MOI as this just now.
Created: 3 May 2018, 9:56 p.m.
Added tag for early-onset
Created: 1 May 2018, 10:19 p.m.
Comment on publications: Added publications supporting association with hyper-IgE syndrome and infantile-onset multisystem autoimmune disease-1.

Orphanet - Autosomal dominant hyper-IgE syndrome. In 70% of patients, the phenotype is associated with heterozygous mutations of the signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 gene (STAT3; 17q21.31).
Created: 1 May 2018, 10:16 p.m.
Comment on list classification: OMIM describes > 3 cases of mutations in STAT3 in patients with hyper-IgE syndrome. Minegishi et al. (2007) (PMID: 17676033) found that 8 of 15 unrelated nonfamilial HIES patients had heterozygous STAT3 mutations. All 5 mutants were nonfunctional by themselves and showed dominant-negative effects when coexpressed with wildtype STAT3. Holland et al. (2007) (PMID: 17881745) identified missense mutations and single-codon in-frame deletions in STAT3 in 50 familial and sporadic cases of HIES. Flanagan et al. (2014) (PMID: 25038750) identified 4 different de novo heterozygous missense mutations in the STAT3 gene in 5 unrelated patients with infantile-onset multisystem autoimmune disease-1. Milner et al. (2015) (PMID: 25359994) identified 9 different heterozygous missense mutations in the STAT3 gene in 13 patients from 10 families with ADMIO1. Changing the rating of this gene from Amber to Green based on > 3 cases of likely disease causing mutations.

This gene was absent from the original PanelApp PID panel dataset (review April 2018). However it was listed in external expert immunodeficiency diagnostic gene list(s)
GOSH or GRID. In this combined PID panel, this gene has been rated as AMBER and needs further curational review to assess pertinence prior to v1.
