Comment on list classification: Currently not enough evidence for this gene to be red - one family reported.
Created: 6 Jun 2016, 8:28 a.m.
Comment on mode of pathogenicity: SLC16A12 transcript expression was reported to be increased in the eye and kidney in a Swiss family with autosomal dominant juvenile cataract, microcornea, and renal glucosuria.
Created: 6 Jun 2016, 8:28 a.m.
Is on the Manchester congenital cataracts gene panel. Not found associated with a disease in G2P. Associated with Cataract, juvenile, with microcornea and glucosuria in OMIM. One family report in OMIM.

  • Kloeckener-Gruissem et al (2008) Am J Hum Genet 82:772-779 - a nonsense variant in SLC16A12 was identified in a Swiss family with autosomal dominant juvenile cataract, microcornea, and renal glucosuria. High SLC16A12 transcript expression levels in the eye and kidney was observed
  • Functional study: Castorino et al (2011) IOVS 52:6774 PMID: 21778275 - reports the variant causes a defect in protein trafficking
  • A 5'UTR SNP was identified in one patient with age-related cataract, and caused increased expression in luciferase assays PMID: 20181839
