Comment on list classification: Making this gene grey as there is agreement from GMS musculoskeletal group (Tracy Lester) that there is no major skeletal involvement. It is green on the Craniosynostosis panel.

Associated with Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 32 #616268 (AD) in OMIM.

PMID: 25728777 -Tham et al 2015 - report six individuals from five unrelated families, with mutations in KAT6A detected by whole-exome sequencing. 5 different de novo heterozygous truncating mutations were identified. An additional subject with a 0.23 MB microdeletion including the entire KAT6A reading frame was identified with genome-wide array comparative genomic hybridization. Craniosynostosis was reported in 2 families. No other major skeletal abnormalities were reported.
