I don't know

TAPT1 is associated with a phenotype on OMIM and Gene2Phenotype; however this phenotype is not associated with the eyes. It is a green gene on the Fetal anomalies panel (code 478, version 0.339). PMID: 27878435 reported a consanguineous family with a splice site variant that caused a frameshift mutation. The same paper also performed mouse studies and found that the gene is down regulated in key gene knockout mice with lens defects. Therefore, there is currently not enough evidence for this gene to be promoted to green status.
