I don't know

This gene is associated with a relevant phenotype in OMIM and Gene2Phenotype. There are >3 unrelated cases of this affected gene in patients who have an eye phenotype, 6 out of 11 cases have nystagmus. There is enough evidence to support a gene-disease association and this gene should be considered for Green status at the next review.
