Green List (high evidence)

This gene and phenotype were re-reviewed during meetings at Great Ormond Street hospital in March and April 2019. Clinical review and curation was performed by Lyn Chitty, Anna de Burca, Rhiannon Mellis, Richard Scott, Ellen McDonagh and Rebecca Foulger. Outcome of re-review: Confirmed that phenotype is fetally-relevant: include on the Fetal anomalies panel as a Green gene. Additional notes from clinical re-review: Structural features from birth. PMID:20463092 report 2 families; 1 affected indiv also had cleft lip and palate. PMID:24280688 report a singleton with micropenis, cleft lip and palate, craniofacial anomalies and ventricular septal defect (VSD) at birth. PMID:18596921 report 6 families with missense variants; one also had variant in FGFR1; in one family 2 sibs had cleft lip/palate but reduced penetrance. Overall include on Fetal panel based on cleft lip/palate phenotype.
