Red List (low evidence)

Gene is not associated with any phenotype in OMIM or G2P.

PMID: 31130284 - Distinct homozygous variants were identified in two cases presenting an overlapping phenotype of ID and epilepsy (intractable in one patient), as part of a large screening study of a highly consanguineous Saudi population. However, no segregation or follow-up functional studies were conducted to validate the variants, and there is currently no other publication data supporting this candidate gene and the relationship with epilepsy.
