I don't know

The addition of this gene was suggested by Associate Professor Jay Self (Southampton University Hospital).

AHR is associated with ?Retinitis pigmentosa 85 in OMIM but not associated with a phenotype in Gene2Phenotype. PMID: 31009037 reported on a Christian-Arabic consanguineous family with 3 affected children who have a homozygous missense variant in the AHR gene that cause a nonsense mutation. This report is supported by knockout mouse models (PMID: 28851966; 23301081). Therefore, AHR has been given an Amber gene rating until more evidence is available.
