Panel Version: 2.113
Comment on list classification: Not associated with phenotype in OMIM and as possible Gen2Phen gene for SLC5A6-related Neurodevelopmental Disorder. At least 4 variants published in two unrelated famililies (3 cases total) with SLC5A6-related Neurodevelopmental Disorder, together with supportive functional studies. One of the cases had mixed semiology seizures including focal dyscognitive, absence, tonic spasms and generalised convulsive seizures with electrographic features of encephalopathy with generalised and independent multifocal spike-wave discharges (PMID 31754459).
