Severe microcephalyGene: FBRSL1
Comment on list classification: There is enough evidence to promote this gene to Green at the next GMS panel update (added 'for-review' tag) - sufficient number of unrelated cases with distinct variants and relevant phenotype, supported by functional data.

- PMID: 32424618 (2020): Three different de novo truncating variants identified by WES in three unrelated individuals with a congenital malformation syndrome. Clinical characteristics include respiratory insufficiency, postnatal growth restriction, microcephaly, ID/GDD and other malformations. 2/3 had heart defects, cleft palate and hearing impairment.
Knockdown of Fbrsl1 in Xenopus laevis embryos resulted in disturbance in the outgrowth of cranial nerves and motor neurons, and craniofacial abnormalities which were rescued with the short N-terminal isoform but not with the isoform bearing one of the human variants.
