Sarah Leigh (Genomics England Curator)

Comment on list classification: This gene was added as Green due to the overall review and evidence assessment from the GMS mitochondrial specialist test group, submitted by Carl Fratter (May 2019) on behalf of GMS mitochondrial specialist test group: Multiple unrelated families; discussed & agreed that this should be included within 'primary mitochondrial disease' (symptoms include hyperammonemia, hyperlactatemia and ketonuria).
From panel: Possible mitochondrial disorder - nuclear genes (Version 0.187).

Green List (high evidence)

Confirmed link to metabolic disease and not likely to be considered in first line metabolic testing and therefore appropriate for this panel. Metabolic abnormalities may disappear outside of illness so definitely worth adding to this panel.
