Variants in this GENE are reported as part of current diagnostic practice

Konstantinos Varvagiannis (Other)

Red List (low evidence)

The gene was present in the current panel with red rating, though with no reviews.

In Pubmed there are no publications concerning a link with ID. One publication (PMID: 21282601) reports on a 9q34.11 148 kb duplication spanning NUP188 as well as few other genes found in an individual with d-TGA (dextro-transposition of great arteries). Eventual other phenotypes are not commented on. A further publication (PMID: 28611029) reports on an individual heterozygous for a splice-site SNV but only cardiovascular phenotype is commented on again (mitral valve prolapse - variant : NM_015354.2:c.4737+1G>T).

There are no publications when searching for the alternative gene symbol (KIAA1069), either.

There is no associated phenotype in OMIM or G2P.
The gene is not included in the SysID and SFARI databases.

The denovo-db lists 4 non-synonymous de novo variants in individuals with autism or mixed phenotype.

In Decipher, all CNVs encompassing NUP188 span also other proximal genes. There are no relevant SNVs.

The gene is part of the ID panel of VCGS (TGW024_genelist_V3 - Oct2018) which was also listed as source in the current panel.

Overall, red rating (or removal from the current panel) seems appropriate.
