PMID: 18997784 - Hennies et al 2008 - Gene is called by previous name of SCYL1BP1. Looked at 13 families all showing the typical GO phenotype. A homozygous nonsense mutation, p.E123X, in the gene SCYL1BP1 (in all affected individuals from all 4 Mennonite families - likely founder effect. In 9 additional GO patients from Germany, Italy, Oman, Pakistan, Libya, Mexico, and the U.S. they found eight other mutations, including five nonsense mutations, two frameshift mutations, one splice site mutation, and one mutation of the deduced methionine start codon.
PMID: 28807865 - Takeda et al 2017 - in 1 patient with Geroderma osteodysplastica with two novel compound heterozygous nonsense mutations in the GORAB gene.

PMID: 28807865 Patient with recurrent long bone fractures and clinical features, including wrinkled skin, joint laxity, and a distinctive face, low bone mineral density. Whole exome sequencing revealed two novel compound heterozygous nonsense mutations in the GORAB gene (p.Arg60* and p.Gln124*).
PMID: 18997784 Found a homozygous nonsense mutation in the GORAB gene in 12 affected individuals from 4 Mennonite pedigrees with geroderma osteodysplastica.
