Gabrielle Wheway (University of the West of England)

Green List (high evidence)

Complete loss of function mutations associated with Meckel-Gruber syndrome and Joubert syndrome. COACH syndrome (Cerebellar vermis hypo/aplasia, Oligophrenia, congenital Ataxia, Coloboma and Hepatic fibrosis) general associated with more severe (but not complete loss of function) hypomorphic mutation. Milder hypomorphic mutations associated with nephronophthisis. Possible modifier/contributer to oligogenic inheritance in Bardet-Biedl syndrome (heterozygous mutation found in BBS9 case, 2 mutations found in cis in another BBS case with no mutations in other known BBS genes).
