Green List (high evidence)

AR Jaberi-Elahi syndrome (JABELS). Neurodev disorder characterised by dev delay and ID and additional features which can include seizures. Jaberi et al, 2016 - consang Iranian family - 4 adult sibs neurodev disorder -1/4 had generalised seizures - hom splice site variant identified segregated with disease in family. Bertoli-Avela et al 2013 - 3 unrelated children each born of consang parents with a severe neurodev syndrome. All had seizures - hom nonsense variants identified. No functional work done.

PMID: 26675814 describes the phenotype of 3 sibs born to consanguineous parents. All presented with delayed early milestones and moderate intellectual disability (IQ 40-50). Cerebellar vermian atrophy was a feature noted in all. Movement anomalies, skeletal problems, abnormal vision and abnormalities of the skin and the hair were part of the phenotype. SWI MRI images were suggestive of brain iron accumulation. All 3 affected sibs shared a single homozygous region not found in homozygosity in their 2 unaffected sibs. Exome sequencing revealed a homozygous GTPBP2 splice variant within this region, leading to skipping of exon 9. The latter was confirmed by RT-PCR experiments. Presence of a truncated protein was confirmed following transfection of HEK293 cells. Mice homozygous for a splice variant were previously (PMID: 25061210) reported to present with similar features although it is not clear whether homozygosity for the GTPBP2 splice variant itself or presence of a concomitant mutation in a tRNA gene was responsible for all the features. //

PMID: 29449720 reports on 3 individuals born to consanguineous parents, all homozygous for GTPBP2 nonsense variants. These 3 individuals belonged to unrelated families. Common features included developmental delay and severe intellectual disability, seizures, visual impairment and skeletal anomalies. Brain MRI was suggestive of hypogenesis/agenesis of corpus callosum, brain atrophy with variable cerebellar hypoplasia. Hair, teeth or skin anomalies may be part of the phenotype. Compared to the previous article, MRI images were did not demonstrate hypointensities compatible with brain iron accumulation. //

DD/ID appears to be a universal feature while seizures have been reported in 4/6 individuals. As a result the gene can be considered for inclusion in the epilepsy panel as amber.
