EIF3F was identified in a recent DDD publication (PMID: 30409806) as a cause of autosomal recessive intellectual disability.

All 9 individuals reported were homozygous for a missense variant (Phe232Val - rs141976414) which has a frequency of 0.12% in non-Finnish Europeans.

Features included intellectual disability (9/9), seizures (6/9), behavioral problems (3/9) and sensorineural hearing loss (3/9). Facial features were not specific.

Extensive functional studies were performed and support pathogenicity of the variant in the homozygous state (reduced protein levels, reduced translation rate in line with the role of EIF3F encoding a subunit for eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, as well as reduced proliferation rates).

As a result this gene can be considered for inclusion in this panel as green.
