Ivone Leong (Genomics England Curator)

Green List (high evidence)

This gene is associated with a relevant phenotype in OMIM and Gene2Phenotype. There are >3 unrelated cases, all with moderate to severe ID. Therefore, there is enough evidence to support a gene-disease association. This gene should be promoted to Green at the next review.

PMID: 29597095 - new publication reported biallelic variants in a 6-year old boy with Primordial dwarfism who had short statue, motor and speech delay and intellectual disability - the diagnosis of this patient in clinical was global developmental delay. Two novel variants in this gene were identified (a missense and a frameshift), one inherited from each parent. Two families reported in PMID: 26416026, with a single shared homozygous haplotype identified in the probands with primordial dwarfism in which severe growth deficiency is accompanied by distinct facial dysmorphism, brain malformation (microcephaly, agenesis of corpus callosum, and simplified gyration), and severe encephalopathy with seizures. A shared variants was identified within this haplotype, which may be a founder mutation.
