Eleanor Williams (Genomics England Curator)

Comment on list classification: Updating from red to green due to 2 unrelated cases reported plus evidence that this is a cilium protein from mouse model.
Created: 11 Dec 2018, 12:07 p.m.
Associated with phenotype in OMIM and not in Gen2Phen. At least 3 variants identified in 2 unrelated cases, together with supportive in vitro studies (PMID: 23692385 and 22510444). Lztfl1 knockout mice show differences in regulation of weight and abnormalities in the retinas. LZTFL1 was localized to the primary cilium of kidney cells. (PMID: 27312011)
