Catherine Snow (Genomics England)

Comment on list classification: After consultation with Genomics England clinical team who identified AKT2 in the review paper PMID:28502730 – "4 cases summarised, they all have the same missense variant, and I can’t see if any work has been done re mechanism e.g. gain of function". Advised rating as Green, although admitted "it would be borderline as a mosaic disorder and a single variant".
