Comment on list classification: There is sufficient evidence to promote this gene to Green at the next GMS panel update. Guo et al 2020 (PMID:33157009) describe multiple families with inherited and de novo deleterious NCKAP1 variants. Neurodevelopmental features represent the core phenotypes, including autistic features, psychomotor delays, and ID or learning disabilities (10/16 individuals had a diagnosis of mild to severe ID)

Zornitza Stark (Australian Genomics)

Green List (high evidence)

PMID 33157009 reports 21 affected individuals from 20 unrelated families with predicted deleterious variants in NCKAP1. This includes 16 individuals with de novo (n = 8), transmitted (n = 6), or inheritance unknown (n = 2) truncating variants, two individuals with structural variants, and three with potentially disruptive de novo missense variants. ASD or autistic features, language and motor delay, and variable expression of intellectual or learning disability were common clinical features. Among inherited cases, there was evidence of deleterious variants segregating with neuropsychiatric disorders. Mouse in utero electroporation experiments showed that Nckap1 loss of function promotes neuronal migration during early cortical development.
