I don't know

This gene is associated with an appropriate phenotype in OMIM and Gene2phenotype. It is a Green gene on Inborn errors of metabolism (v2.28) and Fetal anomalies (v1.111). There is enough evidence for a gene-disease association.

After discussion with the Genomics England Clinical Team, it was decided that this gene should be added as an Amber gene on this panel as the phenotype can mimic cholestasis with a presentation with jaundice.
