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 unrelated cases with functional studies.
From panels: Possible mitochondrial disorder - nuclear genes (Version 0.187) and Mitochondrial disorder with complex I deficiency (Version 0.65).

I don't know

no mutation reports in literature; good candidate gene for complex I deficiency (encodes a subunit of the enzyme)
