Arina Puzriakova (Genomics England Curator)

I don't know

Associated with phenotype in OMIM and a 'probable' gene for ZNF148-related developmental disorder (monoallelic) in Gene2Phenotype.

Maintaining Amber rating in view of the single study (PMID: 27964749) reporting 4 unrelated cases with variants in various genes including ZNF148. Despite ZNF148 likely representing the most promising candidate, as outlined in the recent review by Zornitza Stark, contribution of variants identified in other genes can not be definitively ruled out. No functional studies of ZNF148 variants have been undertaken, and no further studies have been recently published linking ZNF148 to a neurodevelopmental phenotype.

Zornitza Stark (Australian Genomics)

Green List (high evidence)

The ZNF148 variants are truncating and de novo, and meet criteria for pathogenic variant using the ACMG criteria, provided we accept there is gene-disease association. The phenotype reported is also relatively consistent, strengthening the case.

By contrast, the additional variants mentioned by the authors are relatively weak:
The maternally inherited COL3A1 variant is discordant for the observed phenotype, maternally inherited (mother asymptomatic) and has a population frequency consistent with benign variation.
The PDCD4 homozygous variant has been assessed as likely benign by the authors.
The de novo missense variants in SART3 and TCERG1 are firmly VOUS as there is no evidence for Mendelian gene-disease association for these two genes and they have no other compelling features.

We have therefore rated this gene Green.

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

Rebecca Foulger (Genomics England curator)

I don't know

In 4 unrelated children with global developmental delay, hypoplastic corpus callosum, and dysmorphic facies (MIM:617260), PMID:27964749 (2016) identified 4 different de novo heterozygous truncating mutations in the ZNF148 gene. However, variants in additional genes were detected in 3 of the patients, and therefore further ZNF148 cases are required to support ID causation.

12 Mar 2018, Gel status: 2

Panel promoted to version 2.0

Ellen McDonagh (Genomics England Curator)

12.03.2018: Due to major updates completed (Phase 1, 2 and 3), this panel was promoted to Version 2 in order to reflect the major updates since November 2017 which have resulted in reviews for 836 genes added by Genomics England Curators and the Clinical Team, 130 new Green genes added to the interpretation pipeline (from 751 to 881 Green genes), and the gene total has increased from 1879 to 1927.
