I don't know

Associated with phenotype in OMIM and as a possible G2P. At least four variants have been reported in {Epilepsy, childhood absence, susceptibility to, 6} 611942 and two in {Epilepsy, childhood absence, susceptibility to, 6} 611942. This gene is rated as amber as variants do not always segregate with disease.
