Red List (low evidence)

This gene is an Amber gene on the Growth failure in early childhood panel (v1.16). The following reviews are present for this gene on that panel:

"Comment on list classification: Based on the available evidence and expert review, this gene has been promoted from Red to Amber. This gene is associated with a relevant phenotype on OMIM. The family described in PMIDs 24480542 and 29866761 are the same. The 3 sisters in this family had GH deficiency only. PMID: 32462814 had GH deficiency and almost undetectable levels of prolactin as well.
Ivone Leong (Genomics England Curator), 15 Oct 2020

Two families reported. PMID 29866761: isolated growth deficiency and pituitary hypoplasia. PMID 32462814: growth hormone deficiency, central congenital hypothyroidism, congenital cataract, developmental delay/intellectual deficiency and delayed puberty. Full spectrum of phenotype unclear at present.
Zornitza Stark (Australian Genomics), 5 Oct 2020"

As only 1 affected family has congenital cataracts, this gene is given a Red rating.
