gene: SLC36A2 review by Arianna Tucci

19033659 showed the semidominant inheritance pattern in which 2 nonfunctional alleles confer the iminoglycinuria phenotype, whereas 1 nonfunctional allele is sufficient to confer the hyperglycinuria phenotype.PLease also note that iminoglycinuria is a digenic phenotype, that can be caused by homozygous variant in the SLC36A2 gene combined with heterozygous variant in the SLC6A20 gene (605616) or homozygous variant in the SLC6A19 gene (608893).

Mode of inheritance
BOTH monoallelic and biallelic, autosomal or pseudoautosomal

Hyperglycinuria 138500; Iminoglycinuria, digenic 242600

Comment on list classification: because either digenic or insufficient variants / unrelated cases reported in the monogenic form

Digenic with in Iminoglycinuria, digenic (OMIM 242600) with SLC6A20 or SLC6A19. In a pedigree of Coptic-Egyptians 4 individuals who were heterozygous for splice variant IVS1 (+1G-A) had Hyperglycinuria (OMIM 138500) and the one individual who was homozygous for this variant had Iminoglycinuria (PMID 19033659)
