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.
