Green List (high evidence)

Associated with phenotype in OMIM and G2P / DD. Four variants reported, two as compound heterozygotes in two German siblings and one Gambian child. The remaining two variants were found one each as homozygotes (one in a Spanish and the other in an Italian patient). Also mentioned in Update on Leukodystrophies: A Historical Perspective and Adapted Definition (PMID 27564080).
