Following discussion with members of the Endocrine Specialist Group at the Webex call on 23.05.19, it was agreed that PLAG1 should be included on the panel. Therefore updated rating from Red to Green.

This paper reports a frameshift variant in PLAG1 in a proband and two family members with clinical features consistent with Silver-Russell syndrome. A second frameshift variant was found in a singleton from a cohort of patients with suspected Silver-Russell syndrome. No information on population frequency of these variants. PLAG1 was found to be a positive regulator of IGF2. In fibroblasts from one of the patients, IGF2 levels were found to be half that of controls.
