Comment on list classification: The Red review by Konstantinos Varvagiannis supports the current Red rating of CPD. There is currently no evidence to support this gene-disease association, and therefore have kept rating as Red.

Red List (low evidence)

INTS6 was present in the current panel with red rating, though not previously reviewed.

A search in pubmed (also including alternative names eg. DDX26 or DICE1) did not yield any relevant results, apart from an article on 13q14 deletions in individuals with ID (in all cases >4Mb and spanning several other genes | PMID: 26475974).

There is no associated phenotype in OMIM or G2P.
The gene is not listed in the SysID database.

In SFARI, INTS6 appears to be a strong candidate gene (category 2) for autism (2 individuals with de novo variants and ASD reported - details below, no de novo variants found in SSC unaffected siblings, analysis of combined datasets from the SSC and ASC consortia for ASD suggested enrichment for variants).

The denovo-db lists the same 2 ASD subjects included in SFARI, one with a dn missense variant [NM_012141.2:c.410C>T / p.T137I - PMID: 2536768] and the other with a dn nonsense SNV [NM_012141.2:c.1828C>T / p.R610* - PMID: 25961944]. Both subjects were identified in the context of large patient cohorts. Two further individuals did not have pertinent phenotype.

In Decipher there are no relevant CNVs (spanning only INTS6) or SNVs. The same applies for ClinVar.

INTS6 is not included in gene panels for ID offered by diagnostic laboratories as is also the case with the current ID panel of VCGS (TGW024_genelist_V3 - Oct 2018).

As a result, red rating seems appropriate.
