Green List (high evidence)

Comment on list classification: Changing the rating from red to green as 3 unrelated cases have been reported with a distinct hand hyperphalangism phenotype and biallelic or compound heterozygous variants, and segregation as expected in the family in 2 cases (3rd could not be established).

KYNU is associated with Vertebral, cardiac, renal, and limb defects syndrome 2 #617661 (AR) in OMIM.

PMID: 31923704 Ehmke et al 2020 - report 3 unrelated individuals with a ballelic or compound het (a deletion of axons 1-8 and a missense variant) in KYNU and a multisystemic syndrome with hand hyperphalangism resembling Catel-Manzke syndrome. Other features included heart defects and developmental delay (mild in 2 cases) and mild vertebral defects. Microretrognathia was observed in 2 patients consistent with Catel-Manzke syndrome. Two affected individuals tested had elevated urine xanthurenic acid.

PMID: 28792876 Shi et al 2017 - report 2 families where the proband is homozygous or compound heterozygous for loss of function variants in KUNU. The hyperphalgnism described by Ehmke et al was NOT seen, although one patient had talipes, syndactyly and rhizomelia and the other had shortened long bones. Both had cardiac, renal and defects in vertebral segmentation.
