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: 2 cases from 2 unrelated families and functional studies.
From panels: Possible mitochondrial disorder - nuclear genes (Version 0.187) and Mitochondrial disorder with complex IV deficiency (Version 0.40).

Ellen McDonagh (Genomics England Curator)

Added the 'treatable' tag, as in PMID: 24549041 as copper supplement rescues respiratory and complex IV assembly defects in knockout yeast cells, and could be a potential treatment.
Created: 10 May 2019, 11:48 a.m.
Comment on mode of inheritance: Confirmed on OMIM.
Created: 26 Feb 2016, 4:30 p.m.
2 seperate cases reported in OMIM, with functional data to support a defect caused by the mutation.
