Comment on list classification: Gene identified by an expert review by Konstantinos Varvagiannis. Although Konstantinos Varvagiannis suggests that this should be green. PMIDs: 27120463 and 26307567 report on 13 individuals from 7 Ashkenazi families, all with the same variant, therefore reported as a founder effect. A second variant (p.Leu387_Gly395del) was however found in the homozygous state in 2 sibs born to consanguineous parents of a Turkish origin (PMID: 27473128). VPS11 is in OMIM and ID phenotype is relevant.
However as only two unique variants have been identified so far, classifying VPS11 as Amber and adding to the watch list.

Green List (high evidence)

Biallelic mutations in VPS11 cause Leukodystrophy, hypomyelinating, 12 (MIM 616683).

PMIDs: 27120463, 26307567, 27473128 all report on this disorder.

The phenotype consists of global DD, ID, (variable) acquired microcephaly with hypomyelination upon brain MRI. Seizures appear to be a feature in several individuals.

Almost all individuals appear to be of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, homozygous for a founder mutation (NM_021729.5:c.2536T>G or p.Cys846Gly). PMIDs: 27120463 and 26307567 report on 13 individuals from 7 Ashkenazi families.

A second variant (p.Leu387_Gly395del) was however found in the homozygous state in 2 sibs born to consanguineous parents.

Pathogenicity is supported by extensive functional studies in all relevant articles.

VPS11 is not associated with any phenotype in G2P.

The gene is included in gene panels for ID offered by diagnostic laboratories (incl. Radboudumc).

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

[Please consider inclusion in the lysosomal disorders panel as well as in the undiagnosed metabolic disorders panel].
