This gene (also called EVER2) is associated with Epidermodysplasia verruciformis in OMIM. Patients with Epidermodysplasia verruciformis develop flat warts, caused by a specific group of human papillomaviruses (HPV), which may degenerate into nonmelanoma skin cancers. This disease is listed as a primary immune deficiency by the WHO Committee on Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases (Notarangelo et al 2004 (15356576). See Przybyszewska et al (2017) (PMID: 28196644) for a review of its role in immunity. Ramoz et al. (2002)(PMID: 12426567) identified a homozygous deletion of 754 or 755T in the TMC8 gene, which led to a frameshift mutation and termination of the protein at codon 283 in the affected member of an Algerian family with epidermodysplasia verruciformis. They also report that 3 individuals in a consanguineous Colombian family with epidermodysplasia verruciformis had a homozygous 1084G-T transversion in the TMC8 gene that caused a nonsense mutation glu362-to-ter (E362X). Miyauchi et al (2016) (PMID: 26997147) report a Japanese patient with a homozygous 2-bp deletion at the splice site of intron 12 in TMC8, c.1534-3_1534-2delCA, whereas his parents were heterozygous for the mutation. Imahorn et al 2017 (PMID: 28646613) report three Turkish siblings with a homozygous splice site mutation in the donor splice site of IVS9 of TMC8 (c.1127+1G>C) in all patients . Both parentswere heterozygous carriers.

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.

In these patients, lesions degenerate into nonmelanoma skin cancers caused by a specific group of human papillomaviruses (HPV), the Epidermodysplasia Verruciformis-associated oncogenic beta-HPV (EV-HPV) (PMID:26621750).
